Personal: My mom is my hero. She has gone through a lot as a single mom to support me in everything I have done....I enjoy playing soccer and video games....My biggest win was 2019 Nationals which made me eligible to represent the USA at PanAmericans and Worlds...."Time is a created thing. Saying 'I don't have time' is like saying 'I don't want to.'...One thing I love about competition is the rush from fighting and the family and friends that I make from all over....I get my inspiration from my coach, Sensei Steven Alleyne
