CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
The biggest lesson I learned from my cheer journey this far is I’m going to have set backs and that’s okay. Last summer I thought I was invincible. I was progressing so fast it was amazing! I didn’t think anything could stop me. Until I dislocated my left middle finger. I never thought that could ever happen to me. I had seen that injuries were happening to my peers but I never thought me. I never felt that much pain in my life and just looking at my bones out of place scared me. I immediately became scared to tumble after that.
As much as I wanted to progress, I just kept thinking it could happen again. It took me almost an entire year but with the help of my mom, coaches and friends I finally was able to look past my fear and started to progress again. Just as I was getting back on track I injured my knee and was told I had patella tendinitis. It kept me from working out for about a month. I was a little worried I might stumble back into my mental block, but I convinced myself if the doctor said I was okay to work out, I will not let myself fall back into a block. He said as long as I was careful, I’m free to workout 100% again.
My first time back on the mat I kept telling myself I was okay and today I’m not getting hurt and I didn’t. And I’ve been fine since. Injuries happen and that’s okay.
I have to be prepared to handle what happens after they happen..
It won’t scare me from pushing myself anymore!

ARE YOU INVOLVED IN ANY VOLUNTEER OR NONPROFIT?
I do volunteer work with my high school team. Just recently we volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House. We baked fresh cupcakes for the families that are staying there and served them. We also got a chance to meet and visit with them. It was a very rewarding experience. I’m glad this house is there for people that really need it.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS?
I was voted Most Improved by my cheer team this past season. I accomplished a lot of cheer goals in such a short time I was really proud of this award. I’m leaving middle school and entering high school with a 3.8 GPA. Hoping to beat my GPA in high school!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING AN AMBASSADOR?
Being a part of a community of girls that share the same love of cheering and working out is the best! I want to inspire everyone, especially the younger girls because it’s important for them to start early!
HOW HAS BEING AN AMBASSADOR HELPED YOU?
I’m a new ambassador, but I’m hoping being an ambassador will help me to build confidence, inspire others, become a leader, make great friends, and obviously to become more fit!
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL OTHERS WHO HOPE TO BECOME A CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR?
Be prepared to meet new friends, have fun and become inspired to be fit. Becoming an ambassador is a great opportunity!

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
I am loud and goofy and I make people laugh without even trying! I’m the friend you want to have. If you’re sad, mad or hurt I’m the first person to cheer you up. You’ll end up laughing on the floor before I’m finished with you. I love to love and I love everything and everyone!
I’m my mothers only child. You would think I was spoiled but I’m really not. My mom makes me work hard for everything I have or want (even free time). She tells me school and cheer are my jobs. If I want freedom, money, clothes or anything extra I have to set goals and reach them to get my rewards. Nothing comes to me that I didn’t earn. I love her for that. It’s made me more driven.
I used to be a total tomboy but I’m slowly becoming a tomboy/girly girl. As much as I love sports and sweats, I’m starting to love makeup, fashion and glitter!
Aside from cheer, I LOVE to dance! A lot of my dance experience flows into my cheer as well. I have taken jazz, tap and ballet as well as hip hop.
As long as I’m active, I’m happy!
