I was a level 9/10 gymnast but due to an injury I switched to diving. I recently moved to California for more training.
Outside of diving I am a worship leader at a church and I participate in Hope For Kids(community service) in which we bring homeless children from all around the area(with the permission of their parents of course) bring them to a church that we rent and give them a day of worship, food, and games. I am also a gymnastics coach during my free time.
At diving, I am sometimes referred to as the "mom" of the team because I am very good with the younger members of my team, and I also help with divng events.
As a student-athlete I have needed to cope with 4 1/2 hours of diving practice and my schoolwork. Directly after school ends I have 30 minutes to complete some of my homework, I then have practice for 4 1/2 hours and after practice ends I usually spend up to 5 hours on my homework and studying. As a student-athlete, time management has become a necesity and the only way to balance my schoolwork and practice. With all of that being said, nutrition is a major part of my life and I have to give myself time to sleep.
In my community, I participate in a service called Hope for Kids. Hope For Kids is a group that believes that "Hope changes everything." We have rented a church and bring children from all around the area and give them an amazing day, which includes food, games, the gospel, worship and many other incredible things. This is a major part of my life and it is such an amazing experience seeing these young children being changed by the word of the Lord. It is incredible seeing the smiles on their faces and seeing them change each month they come in. I would never trade this for anything in the world.
