WHAT IS THE HARDEST PART ABOUT COMPETING INTERNATIONALLY?
The hardest part about competing internationally is bringing out you best performance on the competition day and dealing with the many different styles of judo.

BESIDES COMPETING, WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT BEING IN ZAGREB, CROATIA?
I’m looking forward to gaining new experiences competing with the best of every country in their division, interacting with Team USA athletes, and the athletes from other countries.

DO YOU THINK WINNING A MEDAL AT THE JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IS A STEP TOWARDS THE 2020 AND 2024 OLYMPIC GAMES?
I definitely see the Junior World Championships as a stepping stone towards the 2020/2024 Olympic Games because every athlete has the same goal and the people in your division will also be contenders for the Olympic slots.
