Surfing for me is life, it’s what I love the most, my passion, it’s what motivates me each day to be better. I feel that I was born for this!
I come from the island, Margarita and my first memories as a child are in the ocean. The first time I saw someone catching a wave I knew it was what I wanted to do. My childhood was filled with beaches, good friends and boards haha.
I started surfing when I was little, I enrolled in competitions and even competed with the boys, I love to compete and test my limits and my talent. I learned a lot in this part of my life, and am filled with gratitude for it, it will always be the first place that I feel in love with surfing and the sea.
For various reasons both tough and outside of my control, the time came for me to leave my country and find a new home. Upon arriving in Cabarete I found more than just a home, I found community and pure support. In Cabarete I feel so grateful to be in a magical place that opened its doors for me from the first moment I arrived. Cabarete supports the best conditions enjoying the diverse offerings and opportunities that the community brings, allowing me to become the person I am today.
I have been working hard hand in hand with my coach Heriberto Tinoco developing my skills and improving every technical and physical aspect of my surfing. I feel committed and able to achieve this goal of becoming the next world champion and bringing joy to all the people who support and trust me. When I'm not training you can find me practicing yoga, skateboarding, adventuring through the beautiful nature that this island offers, as well as sharing time with my friends and family.
Now what I need is your support, I am asking for monetary help to get to El Salvador and continue fulfilling my dream of entering the WSL TOUR and being a high-level professional athlete. I am selected to compete in the next ISA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP where I will be representing my country Venezuela and competing with the best in the world. The competition will take place in El Salvador starting this May 29th until June 7th.
I manifest this for me, for all the groms in my country as well as those of here in the Dominican Republic and other shores of the world. Empowering others to know that anything is possible, that your dreams can be fulfilled with faith and focused work.
I appreciate every grain of support, thank you to everyone on this journey with me.
