Role Model: I honestly don't have a role model. I just want to be the best version of myself and hopefully, other people will look up to me as a role model one day.
Teacher with the most impact: Every teacher I've had has had an equal impact on me. They all worked hard to try to teach me and all the other students the best they could and I really appreciate that about all of them.
What do you like most about Shore Regional? I like gym class and the lunch period because it allows me to burn some energy and talk to my friends.
Activities: I do Judo out of school. I train for 2 to 3 hours every day either at the dojo or at home. I am a Cadet Pan American Champion and I hope to compete at the Olympic Games one day.
Future Goals/Plans: In ten years I hope to be a 2028 Olympian... and hopefully, I'll be trying to qualify for the 2032 Olympics.
