Personal: I started karate when I was 7 years old and this will be my second time on the Junior National Team....My favorite food is sushi....Three things you might not know about me is that I can play the piano, write, and I am pretty good at dodgeball....I love the adrenaline that runs through you when competing, and just the fact that someone is always going to be better than you so you have to push yourself to become better....My parents are my heroes as I would not be here without their amazing support and the hard sacrifices they make...."But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." - Rocky Balboa
