    Athlete Bio


    Miami Gardens, FL

    I started karate when I was 10 years old....This is my second time making the Junior US Team! Reno 2019 in the 16-17 -68kg and Chicago 2019 in the 18-20 -67kg....I don't have one real hero. It would be my whole family. They always make sacrifices for me to be able to train as much as I can. I owe everything to them for making all this possible for me. ...My biggest win was this year at the 2019 national finals for 18-20 -67kg because it gave me the pass to my first world championships and because I did it while being 17!...I love the thrill and the adrenaline from competition. ...I get my inspiration from my brother. He is one of the reasons why I started doing karate. I have always wanted to be like him. ..."Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong" - Ronaldinho
