I have spent my whole life in a gym. My parents owned a gym when I was born so I grew up doing gymnastics, starting when I was 2 years old.

I have made many achievements in my time as a gymnast.  I went to Junior National Championships 3 times, and I also went to Junior Nationals 3 times for Trampoline and Tumbling and I qualified for Junior Elite on Double mini.  I went on to continue to compete for the University of Washington and competed for 3 years on the team and went to collegiate championships in that time.

Favorite Activity:
Circus! Specifically, tramp wall I love the feeling of falling through the air.

Favorite Skill or Event: 
In gymnastics my favorite event is Floor. My favorite skill in gymnastics is a the Shari 2 on the floor (A triple twisting, double layout) 

Favorite Food:
Tonkatsu Ramen, Shoyu Ramen, or Yuzu Ramen. I love Ramen!

Advice for Students:
Gymnastics is the best and the hardest sport out there. Never give up, no matter how hard it gets, how much it hurts, never give up. If you keep trying you will succeed.
