I am an educator, wrestler, grappler, jiu-jitsu fighter. My passion is to serve female athletes who are fighting a gender disparity that is often beyond their control. I have learned from my own wrestling and grappling experiences what it feels like to be mistreated based on gender. I also know what it feels like to have to “earn your spot on the mat”. I support all athletes and wish to empower young women to follow their dreams in the world of combat sports. I grew up in a single-parent household where my mother did the best she could to raise me. We had our struggles of car repossessions, being removed from the housing we had, and not having enough to eat some days.
Through adversity, I saw that education was a way to overcome these environmental challenges. I was exposed to many inappropriate situations which resulted in my desire to educate myself and others to be strong in who they are. When growing up around violence and in communities that did not offer many opportunities for the youth, I knew I had to seek other ways to grow. My wrestling career began when I was 14 years old. I approached my coach and asked if I could join the high school team. His response stuck with me for the rest of my life. “Hell no honey, not in that”. I eventually did join the team, I made the best friends I ever had, and I learned more about myself and the social expectations of women than I had ever thought possible. This sparked something in me where I had found what made me strong. I felt like I was able to fight my battles more effectively because I had the mental and physical competence that had developed through this sport that is genuinely one of the toughest things I have done. I am now on a journey to help other young female athletes find their place on the mat.
