I was born in Chicago

I have been a gymnast since I was 3

my favorite hobby is surfing (when I get the opportunity)

I have considered doing college gymnastics

when I’m older I want to be a marine biologist

I have been to Hawaii 3 times

I want to scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef

my floor routine music is snoop dogg

my IT band in my knee is messed up

I have a bad back

I have had 4 surgeries from gymnastics related injuries

this song was playing when I was competing beam at state and I stuck my routine

this is my coach when she was int the olympics, she is inspiring to me because she is still connected to the gymnastics community and still coaches (from wasgymnastics.wikia.com)

Emma Watson inspires me because she stands up for everything she believes in, and tries to make a difference in the world by talking at United Nations (from hercampus.com)

my gymnastics team inspires me because we always ouch each other to be the best we can be and we are like a big family
