I am a collegiate sprinter and jumper. I was born and grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I moved to Arlington, Massachusetts for high school.
I believe in taking big chances that scare me but will have a positive impact on me. I want to inspire the younger athletes either from my social media or my journey in general. I believe I am always the underdog in my sport so being able to have success would nudge people to start doing what they are passionate about. I do crazy things normal people would not consider doing (for example would be waking up early to train, even if it is during summer vacation) because I want to be at a higher level. I will do anything it takes to make sure I accomplish my goals. Working hard and smart does not guarantee success or wins, but it increases my chances of doing so.
I know there are not many Asian-Americans in sports, especially in Track and Field. One of my interests is to hopefully inspire them through my story and journey, encouraging them that they can be at a high level in Track and Field.
