TRACK & FIELD | Paralympian, Women’s Sports Foundation Travel and Training Grantee

At 14 years old, I ran for the first time and this forever altered the way I saw myself and the direction of my life. The exhilaration and confidence I gained through running transformed me from a painfully timid recluse, to a young woman who found the courage and strength to beat all the odds. I proudly support the Women’s Sports Foundation and National Girls and Women in Sports Day and want nothing more than for girls everywhere to be inspired to follow their dreams!
