Personal: I started karate when I was 7 and this year will be my second year on the Junior National Team....I listen to all kinds of music but my favorite artist is Kanye West (someone would get mad if I didn’t put him)....My biggest win was my third place fight in the Pan Americans....My mum is my real life hero because she always finds a way for me to continue competing in karate and she pushes me even when I’m tired to keep on going and for that, I’m grateful...."You only fail when you stop trying."
