DO YOU HAVE A ROUTINE THE DAY OR NIGHT BEFORE COMPETITION?
Straight out of weigh-ins; I begin to mentally prepare myself for my next task. I typically like to have a good meal, relax a bit with friends, and lastly watch a little judo with some motivational videos on my phone before bed.

WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST MENTOR/INSPIRATION IN JUDO?
My biggest mentor and inspiration in and out of judo without a doubt is my coach, Chris McDonald. He has guided me into the right mindset in so many aspects of life, has always been there for me, given me so much knowledge and I aspire to follow his footsteps as an amazing mentor, friend, coach, and true judoka.

WHAT WOULD IT MEAN TO YOU TO COME HOME WITH A MEDAL?
Coming home with a medal would mean the world to me, it would be a dream come true. I will forever be happy and I would feel amazing knowing all the people back home I would be making proud. I would also probably start considering more to become Olympian.
