I started playing competitive golf in 2014, just before my 9th birthday. I fell in love with the game. Thanks to the advantage of living in Southern California, I had the opportunity to practice year-round and compete against some of the best junior golfers in the nation.
I picked up the game quickly and qualified to play in the 2016 9/10 IMG Junior World Championship in San Diego. As a then 12 year old I recorded my best, finishing the Junior World Championship top 25 out of 141.
In 2018, I qualified to represent the US Kids Coachella Valley team at the Western Junior Cup scoring the lowest two-day round and winning the tournament.
In 2019, I was asked by the captain of the PGA Junior league defending national champions to play on the team. Even though we didn’t win, I learned a lot about myself as a team player, team strategy, the pressure and expectations of playing for a winning team and how hard you have to work to be the best.
My end goal is to play competitive college golf where I can contribute and make a positive impact. I understand that in order to be a successful college student and golf team member I need to be very disciplined. I have learned that hard work and good time management are keys to success. I want to continue to get better on the course and in the classroom.
