You might notice I have a stars and stripes jersey on, maybe someone passed down to me, and I wasn't a national champion then, but I dreamt about it.
Eight years later, I am capping off my final year as a junior. Never did I imagine winning 5 national jerseys, obtain a national track record, and a handful of medals. With the help of so many people like Robin Farina, Uptown Cycles, NOW Pro Cycling team and of course my parents, I am able to have achieve so much in just the start of my career.
They, among many others, have helped me achieve my dreams and now I move from the big fish in a small pond to a shrimp in the ocean!
Above is the podium for the 2k Individual Pursuit at the Junior Track National Championships last week.
She is a champion in the making, winning 3 bronze medals this week!

I hope to impact some one's life where they can be inspired to be a champion, not matter if they win medals or not!
Great ideas to come! I may be leaving the junior field as a racer, but I will never leave the junior field as an ambassador!
What am I doing now?
I am currently at Mars Hill, NC for the Mars Hill junior cycling camp. I am a camp counsellor, here, empowering kids the potential this sport gives and teaching kids how to be a great bike racer. In the past, I have been to so many junior camps, as a camper. Now, being a counsellor, it feels so different, but I love the role!
Stay tunned for more junior cycling camp updates! Thanks for reading!
