WHAT MOTIVATES YOU? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I'm motivated to chase the best version of myself. My community motivates me too. Being able to pass my experiences on helps to inspire the next generation. I do my best to show people that you can come from anywhere and make it to the top. I’m also extremely motivated to ride for my teammate who passed away in 2019. I will always #ridefortate.
HOW ARE YOU DOING GOOD IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
I’m doing good in my community by being a NICA coach. I think it's important to be a good role model for middle schoolers and high schoolers. Having a positive influence can make the experience for the athletes a lot more beneficial. I have also taken over a mentor position on the RENO Devo Program.
