CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?

I started cheering when I was four years old and I had no idea that this sport would turn into such a major part of my life . I quickly began doing privates, and I basically lived at the gym every day. I will never forget the days of hanging out with so many cheer family members . I got a full at the age of six years old. I love the sport so much because there’s so many different levels of cheer that whatever level you are or whatever skill you have you can still be on a competitive team and enjoy yourself meeting new people traveling and enjoying the competitions. I have had to change gyms three times and it was the most difficult times of my life because the gyms that I went to we all became family. It was very difficult to leave gyms, but I had to because of the skill levels that I had at an early age. I thank all my coaches and all my cheer family for always standing behind me supporting me and cheering for whatever team or whatever gym I was representing that year.


I am 14 years old now, and the two things that I’ve always wanted is to be on a level 5 team and win NCA and the Summit. I have accomplished all of those things.


I am 14 years old now and the two things that I’ve always wanted is to be on a level 5 team and win NCA and the Summit. I have accomplished all those things by working very hard, respecting all my friends respecting all of my coaches’ decisions and working very hard. I thank my mom and my family for always supporting me and allowing me to be a part of this great sport .

CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?

I started All-Star Cheer 4 yrs ago. I broke both bones in my left arm, which resulted in them both sticking out of my arm. I had to have multiple surgeries – 2 plates and 16 screws, just for my arm to heal. I wore a cast that went from the knuckles on my left hand, all the way to my arm pit for almost 9 months. I then had 4 months of physical therapy to strengthen my arm and get my range of motion back.

I now have two 6 inch scars and a 1 inch circular scar to my left forearm. It has been difficult relearning my tumbling skills because I still have numbness and tingling to my arm. My elbow also becomes stiff and will lock up at times . . . 


. . .but I’m more determined than ever to succeed.


I also lost my dad to adult respiratory distress in 2011, and my mom is currently battling stage 3 breast cancer. I’ve learned that you keep fighting no matter what.

CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A TIME YOU SAW SOMEONE BEING BULLIED AND HOW IT MADE YOU FEEL? 

I saw a kid in my class get bullied because he has a cochlear implant. They were making fun of him and calling him names at recess. It made me feel very sad that they were making fun of him. I told the teacher and we had a lesson about how we’re all made different and that’s what makes us unique. My teacher said we should uplift and support our classmates, not bring them down.

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO IS BEING BULLIED?

Don’t let them get you down – what they’re saying isn’t true. Jesus loves you and you are so special. Be the bigger person and show whoever is bullying you, how being treated nicely feels. Bullies need love too. If the problem gets worse, tell a teacher or an adult who can help you!

HOW DO YOU MOTIVATE AND SUPPORT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND TEAMMATES?

l support my family by helping in any way that I can: I do my chores, I play with my brothers, I keep my grades up and I always remind them how special they are to me and how much I love them!! I support my friends and teammates by complimenting them, cheering them on and encouraging them to go the extra mile when they’re trying to reach new goals! I love to motivate my teammates and friends to be the best version of themselves. When you focus on being stronger, inspiring others, living healthier and being a leader – it brings out the best in people and encourages them to do the same. 

HOW HAS BEING A CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR HELPED YOU?

CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A TIME YOU FELT BULLIED AND HOW IT MADE YOU FEEL? 

Last school year I was bullied by a girl in my class. I never understood why she bullied me, but she would hit me and call me names in front of everyone in my class.This made me suffer from anxiety and I was afraid to tell anyone because I didn’t want to get teased for telling. It lasted almost the whole school year until I finally spoke up and told my mom and she handled it privately with my school principal.
