I love to go around! – Sportskanazee.com

I started doing gymnastics when I was 6 years old in Virginia. There, I started the JO levels at level 3 (no level 1 or 2).

When my father retired from the Navy, we moved to Georgia when I was 8 years old.

They immediately put me on level 3 when we arrived. I had just finished State at level 7 when I decided to retire from club gymnastics. I had realized that because gymnastics in college is so competitive and difficult to get a scholarship, I thought Acro & Tumbling would be the best route for me.

The floor was always my strongest event.

I love to go around!

He knew he had to start cheering for the All-Star Game to learn how to do stunts for A&T. I am currently in a junior elite level 2 team @legacallstars.

Next year I will move to a 4/5 Elite or Open level team.

I couldn’t just quit gymnastics. So, I decided to stay on my high school gymnastics team.

This year I will be on the Varsity team.

Gymnastics has had its ups and downs. However, I will be eternally grateful for those who trained me at @georgiaelitegymnastics.

They gave me all the tools I need to encourage A&T. I made so many friendships that will last a lifetime.

My current coaches, I know they will get me exactly where I want to be for an opportunity at A&T University.

The school of my dreams is Baylor!

However, many other schools have fantastic A&T teams.

I know that if I work hard at school, stay committed, and focus, my dreams will come true.

I thank my family, friends, teammates, IG friends, and the Community of Christian Athletes for all their love and support during my journey!

I couldn’t do it without any of them.

I can’t wait to see what the next 3.5 years will bring, before college!

Thank you very much for being here for me.
