How influential were your parents in your athletic career and in what ways? My parents are the sole reason I am where I am today. They have completely dedicated their lives to making sure I have every opportunity to become the best in whatever I have chosen to do. They have gone as far as to uprooting their lives not only once but twice. First being within the state of Florida and the second being all the way across the country. They have also supported me financially so that I have been able to dedicate myself to the fullest in chasing the Olympic dream.
