Track and field has played a huge part in my life for many reasons. It’s been character building, it earned me a scholarship to a major university where I earned my degree, I’ve traveled the world, and most importantly I’ve made lasting friendships over the years in the sport. If it weren’t for track, I’m not sure what my life would be.
Coming from a divorced family, I watched my mother make countless sacrifices to make sure my brother and I had everything we needed. While sport is something we hope all children are exposed to for many reasons, it can be very costly. I remember selling candy in school to help ease the financial burden for all of my trips across the country to compete. There was gas, flights, rental cars, food, and entry fees. For this reason I want to help families by providing scholarships for girls who have qualified to attend high school nationals.
It has become my passion to help young girls to see the world and be exposed to the opportunities that I was blessed with, and led to my success in my career. Having watched my mother make countless sacrifices to see her daughter happy, I hope to help some families do the same for their daughters.
