Growing up I didn't live in the best neighborhoods and sometimes things in my life weren't always consistent for me; however, the one thing I could always depend on was that no matter where I was or what I was doing in life is that wrestling would always be there for me. Wrestling kept me off the streets and taught me important life lessons such as discipline and how to build character. I owe a lot to wrestling and I wanted to start this academy for kids like me who just want some consistency in their lives and an opportunity to grow as individuals through the sport of wrestling.

Wrestling is something I've been surrounded by my whole life. Even at a young age my father coached a wrestling club in Maine and from the moment I was able to walk meant that I was able to wrestle. Being one of the few girls to wrestle at such a high level and such a young age could be kind of nerve racking at times, but I think it shaped me into the person I am today and taught me a lot about myself. I learned that being different from the crowd is okay and embracing what makes you different is what makes each individual special.

To me, wrestling isn’t just my job and isn’t just a sport. To me wrestling is a lifestyle. To indulge and engulf myself fully and whole-heartedly, it has shaped me into the human being I am. It has taught me the meaning of honestly being true to myself and knowing the effort I put in to it. It has helped me become the Soldier-Athlete that I am and has prepared me for life’s battles and speed bumps. It has graced me with the highest of highs, and lowest of lows, but keeps me constantly seeking for growth. To me, wrestling is my drug that keeps me waking up for more.
