Wrestling has been my driving force that continues to push me. Though I didn’t start this journey until 10th grade, I didn’t let that stop me from really giving it my all. I am grateful for all the amazing people that I’ve surrounded myself with that have been able to take me from a youngster to a D1 national qualifier.
As a dual citizen of the US and Colombia, I have an opportunity to compete for the Colombian team with a great training base at Lehigh University. The Lehigh Valley Wrestling Club and the people of Pennsylvania overall have taken me in, as if I were one of their own. Changing nationalities will land me one step closer to being at the 2020 Olympic games, the ultimate goal. It’s been a life-long goal of mine to be able to participate in this, ever since my good-ole Judo days.
I was hoping to not worry about money, unfortunately, expenses keep on coming up no matter how hard I try to hide them. As my sport Psychologist, Jarrod Spencer says, “clearer mind, better performance.”
So here is where I need your help: United World Wrestling (UWW) needs $5,000 so I can change nationalities to represent Colombia by December 2017. Along-side the fee, there's also day in day out expenses like, food, trainer, accommodations, travel and more. All jokes aside… whether it’s a prayer, a donation or a sponsorship, I am thankful to have you in my corner.
Thank you for helping me get one step closer to my dream!
