WHAT EMOTIONS DO YOU THINK YOU WILL FEEL DURING YOUR FIRST MATCH?
The first match is always the hardest. For me, it determines how well I do throughout the day, so a lot of emotion is put towards that first fight.

I always look forward to learning about other cultures and customs from around the world.

WHAT WOULD IT MEAN TO YOU TO COME HOME WITH A MEDAL?
To me, it would signify the beginning of a new chapter in my judo career.
