I started wrestling when I was about 12 years old, however, I competed in and practiced jiujitsu ever since I was 7 years old. As I have grown up, I noticed that even from a young age, I wanted to challenge myself physically, mentally, and socially, so when I approached 7th grade, I figured I should give the wrestling team a try. Being the only girl wrestler on an all boys team in middle school was at first something for everyone to get used to. Coaches, teammates and opponents were shocked when they would see me practicing and competing, however, I stuck with it and it led me to gaining the strongest passion I’ve ever had and over the years, this passion just kept growing and growing. Wrestling has been a large part of my life for the past several years and has taught me many lessons about leadership, coachability, accountability and sacrifice.
Now, as I am approaching the last 2 years of high school, I realize how much of an asset I am to my team and teammates. I am not only determined and passionate, but I am also the most intense and hardest worker in the room at all times. I am now a junior at Manalapan High school in New Jersey and excited for all of what the new school year brings. I plan on training harder than ever and achieving all of my goals. As of right now, I have a few national tournaments and duals coming up which occur before and after the highschool season which I will also be participating in. I plan on placing high and aiming for gold . Being an A and B student already, I plan on working even harder on school work and raising my grades to only A’s. Through my high school career so far, I achieved all american status at Fargo, placing 4th and am a two time state champ for women in New Jersey.
