When you are passionate and believe in something so strongly, it works as your strength and pulls you up to make you a stronger and better person. That’s exactly how I feel about my sport. My passion keeps me happy, healthy and focused. I have been in this profession for eight years and I look forward to learn something new every day. I still have a long way to go and many new roads to tread.”
