Plano, TX


Plano East Senior High School The University of Texas at Austin

I have made the Junior National Team 4 times now: 12/13 -45kg, 14/15 -63kg, 16/17 -76kg, U21 -75kg...My favorite food is chicken alfredo....A hidden talent of mine is that I like to swim. ...My dad is my real life hero. He inspires me to be my best....My biggest win was winning the national championships in 2015, because it boosted my confidence as an athlete....The pre-competition jitters, the months of training, the tension in staging, and the excitement in the ring are my favorite things about competing...."I came, I saw, I conquered." ...Hobbies: Cooking, hiking, tennis...Instagram: @safinkasturi
