My Olympic Dream

Ever since I was 8 years old I dreamt of making the Olympics. Not a day goes by that I don't think of representing the United States of America on the biggest stage in the world. Gymnastics is my everything and has made me the person I am today. It truly is my life.

I recently graduated from the University of Oklahoma where I won 3 team national championships, 1 individual national championships and earned 12 All American honors. I was a captain of my team my senior year where we won our thrid national title in a row. 

I am now training back in Houston at the gym where my career started. I have expenses such as paying for my own meet fees, traveling expenses such as flights and hotels, grips, tape, supplements, recovery, and most expensive is an apartment in Houston. Living on my own is expensive and I am reaching out to seek help so I may continue to reach my childhood goals of making the Olympic team. 

Most importantly I want to share my love of Jesus Christ. He has blessed me with talents and the ability to compete and perform at such a high level. Regardless of where my athletic career takes me, I will continue to allow him to live through me and give him all the glory. I will always compete for an audience of 1 and continue to point to the sky to show everyone who gives me the strength.
