Personal: My hobbies include sleeping , eating , shopping , and taking pictures....My hero in real life is my grandma, she does a lot for me and she's always there for me. She always wants to help me become my very best self and she teaches me a lot of things that will help me in the future....Lumpia is my favorite food!...I like the adrenaline in competition, I like the atmosphere, and I like the challege it gives me to compete against the best of the best all around the United States....I get my inspiration from my senseis, because they both sacrifice their time to help me get better, and they're always busy with work , and they still take up the time to train my teammates and I, and out teammates. They also sacrifice their time away from their family to train us...."It comes down to one thing. How bad do you want it?"
