Fun Fact:  I get to train along side my sister Bella, who is also a level 10 gymnast.  My team has always felt like a second family to me especially because I get to train and compete with my sister- this year even in the same level!

How I got started gymnastics: I took my first gymnastics class when I was 18 months old and have loved the sport from day one.
