I started to gain interest in track when I was a freshman. I really started to fall in love with track when I won my first district championship. Competing in track over the years has shown me that I love to perfect hard tasks, I love competition, I love to win and most importantly it has shown me that nothing is handed to you. My junior year of high school I had a knee injury during football season. I had to go through physical therapy so I could come back strong for track. That same year I came back and ranked first in the state in both my events.
