I enjoy playing ping pong with my family members. We are all very competitive and one of my dads is a former competitive gymnast so we have a friendly competitive rivalry between each other.
Fun Facts About Me
I am a volunteer of the F.E.A.T. program at Gymcats which instructs children diagnosed with Autism to learn social skills, build relationships, and improve gross motor skills thru the sport of gymnastics. I also enjoy dancing and recently performed in the Tango number at the DanceCats recital.
My father competed as a competitive gymnast and my brother and I used his old high bar and ring grips when we first started training as Level 4 gymnasts.
