I started gymnastics when I was 5 in England. I went two times per week for an hour and loved it. They only went up to level 3, but I was quickly at the top of the gymnastics levels there and was working on skills on my own. I moved to Japan when I was I was 8. There I tried out and was allowed to start in a Level 4 class. But because my gym in England didn't have bars, I was very far behind in the portion of gymnastics. I worked very hard and in a year my bars were up with my other skills. I was able to join the Typhoon Twisters gymnastics team there and competed each year in Hawaii. I learned a lot, but we were very limited on the amount of hours we could be in the gym. The most hours I could get in the gym averaged around 9-12 hours. I moved to Mississippi when I was 12 and absolutely love my new gymnastics family! They welcomed me so very warmly and I've learned so very much in a year and allowed me to step into the Level 6 team and am now competing Level 7. I started this season off with my highest scored I've ever received with a 36.95 All-Around score. My hopes are to keep improving each time I compete and be the best I can be!
