Personal: I started karate when I was 5 years old....This is my first time making the Junior US Team!...My real life superhero is: Simone Biles. She puts in so much hard work and time into her sport, always keeps a positive attitude, and seems very kind....My biggest win happened the very first time I competed at US Nationals in 2010 at the age of 9. I took gold in intermediate kumite and bronze in intermediate kata. Competing at that national tournament motivated me to pursue sport karate even more....I love the feeling of going out on to the mat and competing. I enjoy the adrenaline and the challenge. It gives me something to work toward in my karate training, and I love learning something new with every competition, win or lose...."You may not realize when it happens but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you." -- Walt Disney
