When did you start boxing and why: I began at the age of 7. I saw it on TV and fell in love with the sport. My dad took me to a boxing gym and the rest is history.

Amateur record: 19-3

Career highlights to this point: Winning 3 straight Ringside World Championships, 6 Title National Championships, 2016 USA Boxing Junior Open Champion, 2016 Junior Olympic medalist and being named the best athlete in my middle school for all sports.

What do you think is your greatest asset in the ring: My brain, because it tells me when to jab, throw the right hand, slip punches, roll under punches, throw combinations and be the great athlete that I am.

If you weren’t boxing, what would you be doing? Excelling in basketball and all my other middle school sports.   

Who has been your biggest inspiration and why: My dad. He has invested so much interest in everything I do. He is the greatest dad and coach in the world. He supports everything that I am involved in, and I owe so much to him.

What motivates you the most: I hate losing more than I enjoy winning. Never losing is my biggest motivation in and out of the ring.

What are five things that most people don’t know about you: 1. I’m a straight “A” honor student. 2. My favorite color is green. 3. I want to be a sports broadcaster after my Olympic run. 4. I love to read. 5. I have been to Disney World 19 times.
