The kind of athlete that I am is a determined and hardworking runner. I put my all into my workouts and races, I am willing to do whatever I can to be successful in track and I’m always thinking of how I can be better. I accept my failures/hardships and use them as motivation.

Track has become a part of my life and I couldn’t imagine not going as far as I possibly can with it. Going to college and no longer being a student-athlete just wouldn’t feel normal. Running is who I am.

My teammates would descride me as a driven and supportive teammate. I am looked at as a leader and a motivator to the girls on my teams. Some of them even come to me for encouragement before or after races.

I plan to major in Kinesiology, I want to become a physical therapist.

My best race was was in April 2018. It was the first time in a while that I had strategically ran the 800 and ended up running my personal record. I met all of my target times and my effort showed in my finishing time. I ended up placing 4th and advancing to the regional track meet.

Texas A&M has been one of my dream schools since I was in about 6th grade. From the first time I visited, I was always able to imagine myself going to school there. The track facilities and school spirit within the campus is amazing.

“Train hard, Race easy.” It is on a shirt I have from Sanya Richards-Ross and it’s literally how track works. Practices are way harder than a meet, so if you always give 100% at practice, race day will feel easy.
