    Personal Goals: To be in a state of constant improvement and set an example for others.

I want to show that you can succeed just by being yourself and living outside the norms.

    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
