HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT GOING BACK TO THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS? HOW DO YOU HOPE TO IMPROVE?
I’m excited to go back to the Worlds because I hope to redeem myself from Cadet Worlds and take home a gold medal!

WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST MENTOR/INSPIRATION IN JUDO?
My biggest mentor in judo is Katelyn Bouyssou because through injuries, she always found ways to make herself better and is now one of the best judoka in the world.

DO YOU THINK WINNING A MEDAL AT THE JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IS A STEP TOWARDS THE 2020 AND 2024 OLYMPIC GAMES?
Yes, winning a gold medal at Junior Worlds will send a message to the whole judo world. It will show that the U.S. has high hopes for the next few Olympic Games.
