How did your MMA journey commence?

My brother saw a commercial on TV for an MMA school. We tried it and I LOVED it!

What is it about MMA that attracts you to the sport? 

Everything!! I love to train and compete.

Who was your favourite fighter growing up? 

Debi Purcell, Ronda Rousey, Shawn Valentin and Tecia Torres.

What sort of a fighter would you say you are?

Well rounded. I train both jiujitsu and kickboxing and am accomplished in both.  I am an aggressive fighter.

What has been your most memorable moment in MMA thus far? 

Winning my IKF Championship and also my first belt. So there are 2!

You have an affiliation with Redemption Martial Arts – why did you choose to support this great cause?

I have been bullied because of my speech and dyslexia. I do not want others to go through that. People think that since I am in the MMA world so young I am a bully but I am the exact opposite!

For potential promotions or sponsors out there – what separates you from the rest of the fighters in the sport?

I work hard, love to train, and do my best to be a great example to others. I leave a fight with a handshake, hug and a smile, win or lose. I love the sport.

Your dream fight – who would it be?

Ronda Rousey

What would you say is your penultimate goal in MMA?

To win a UFC belt!

I would like to thank my sponsors: FighterGirls, Impact Custom Mouthguards, FutureFighterz, Soap-a-licious, Xionx, Redemption Martial Arts, Florida Embrodiery for always being in my corner. And to my coaches Jeffery Montablano, Mike Sgroi and Shawn Valentin.
