Education: High school as well as some college courses.
Personal Goals: To be in a state of constant improvement and set an example for others. I'm a teenage female weightlifter who has about seven different colors in her hair and wears ZERO makeup outside of meets or getting photos taken. I want to show that you can succeed just by being yourself and living outside the norms.

Favorite Book: I don't read that often. But out of the books I have, probably the Olivia the Pig series; I collected them when I was younger.
Favorite TV Show: Right now and Adventure Time
Favorite Song: “Loca People.” We always play that song when we go for PRs
Hobbies/Interested outside of Weightlifting: Teenage shenanigans
Most people don’t know that…. I'm pretty open about everything
