    Athlete Bio


    Winter Garden, FL

    I started karate when I was 5 years old....This is my first time competing for the Junior US Team!...My hero in real life is my mom because she is a single mother of 3 kids and somehow manages to get everyone where they need to go (karate,dance,soccer etc) also she owns her own business and over all is a good person...My biggest win was USA open 2019 team Kumite because I was the under dog not many people believed in me and after taking a hard blow I won 5-0...I love competition, it’s really fun stressful at first but once I fight it is awesome....I get my inspiration from my teammates I always try to be faster stronger and train harder than the older students..."F.E.A.R means 2 things forget everything and run or face everything and rise"
