    Athlete Bio


    Chicago, IL

    I started karate at the age of 8!...I went to Pan Ams in 12-13 +50kg, 14-15 +70kg, and I made Worlds for 14-15 +70kg...My biggest win was getting 5th place at the Junior Pan American Championships in 2017. It was the best I had ever done at an international competition, and it helped me realize that I really can compete with some of the best out there. It has inspired me to train even harder. ...I get inspiration from all my friends. They are all so supportive of me and they all push me to be better
