Proudest Taekwondo Moment: Making the National Team in both sparring and poomsae in the same year

Did You Know?:
Priscilla is the first and the youngest to become a USAT National Team member in both sparring and individual poomsae in the same year. She spends between nine and 10 hours on the highway every weekend to train with the poomsae team.

Quotable: “You will never know your limits unless you push yourself to them.”
