WHY DID YOU START WRESTLING-I was looking for a challenge that other sports didn't offer.


WHAT HAS THE SPORT OF WRESTLING DONE FOR YOU.-It has made me more diciplined, I'm deffinately in shape, It gives you confidence, it pushes you to the max and it makes you try your hardest and when its over its so awesome.


WHAT HAS BEEN YOU BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT TO DATE?- I don't know, just getting out there and wrestling is a big accomplishment in itself for girls.

WHAT IS YOUR INSPIRATION FOR WRESTLING?- My inspiration, I really didn't have one when I started because wrestling is not very popular in Louisiana, especially not for girls, I only know of about 5 others in the whole state. But hopefully my presence and theirs will make it more popular. I'm pretty sure they'll be some more girls next year.


DO YOU HAVE A HERO AND WHY?-

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY TO THE YOUNGER GIRLS COMING UP?- Stick with it, no matter what anyone tells you, ignore the negative and thank the positive, to wrestle is the best choice you'll ever make in your life, and I'm sure all other female wrestlers will agree.

WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO IMPROVE THE SPORT OF WOMENS WRESTLING?-There should be more opportunities for girls to wrestle, people should wake up and be more supportive.

WHAT CLUB/HIGH SCHOOL DO YOU WRESTLE FOR?-ESJ high school
