Personal: I started karate when I was 7....My hero in real life is my mom, she's sacrificed so much for us. ...My biggest win was finals this year (2019) because it secured me a spot on the world team....I love competition because of the rush and being able to see my friends....My inspiration is my Sensei, he is always pushing me. ..."Pizza" - Lester Diaz
