I am extremely dedicated and hardworking, both academically and athletically, and I put in the effort on and off the mat to achieve my goals. I do not believe anything comes easy. I believe if you work hard enough and genuinely want something, then you can achieve it. I want to develop my skills and talent not only to become a national championship-level wrestler in college, but also to compete and win at the Olympic level. I want to leverage that success “on the mat” to inspire other young kids who have a similar mindset and are going through adversity – “that you can get done anything you set your mind to”.
