I’m a goofy, optimistic weirdo at heart, who loves all things wacky, eccentric and artistic in this world. I recently had an incredible experience competing on American Ninja Warrior, which was all of those things and then some! But I also have a very serious side that is empathetic to all the people in the world who need help, whether physically, mentally or emotionally, and want to do as much as I can to create a better world through social change. Through my physical training and dedication, I’ve also gained a lot of self-awareness and self-love, and I want to spread that love and compassion toward others, inspiring them to develop their talents and enjoy life fully, treat each other with respect and take care of this beautiful planet. But that doesn’t mean I won’t kick some butt on the obstacle course! Someday, I hope to use my Sociology degree, Spanish minor and Health Studies concentration to help people abroad in dire poverty.
