What do you like to do besides racing bikes?

Outside mountain bike racing, I love to read. At any free moment, I find myself yearning to pick up a book just to get lost between the pages. I delight in spending time with my family as well, between the little moments we carve out of our busy schedules during dinner and the four of us thoroughly enjoying music together on extended car rides.


What’s your happiest place?

My happiest place comes in a mental state; carefree relaxation. Usually, I feel this way when my family of four is chatting together and teasing one another. Though, sometimes, I feel this way when I am cycling, and I find myself looking around and absorbing the beauty of my home.


What’s your top moment on the bike that’s not a result?

For me, the top moment on the bike is the exhilaration of descending. It is so much fun for me to conquer obstacles, the sheer thrill making my stomach jump to my throat. It is especially rewarding after all the climbing required to reach the top of the hill in the first place.


What specialty dish do you like to cook?

I don’t particularly mind cooking, though I do love to make fancy wraps with avocado spread and spinach as a base. I’ve learned to make many meals from needing to prepare a well-balanced lunch every day for school, but I have to admit; wraps are a favorite.


What other non-biking related fact(s) about yourself would you like to share?

Some non-biking related facts would start with how I wrote a young adult fiction in sixth
grade. Though I never got the work published, I hope someday to complete the process. I also wish to attend Stanford University in pursuit of a career in the medical field, and as of now I aspire to be a surgeon. Also, I finished my freshman year with a 4.4 academic GPA.


What schooling are you doing next year?

I am currently a sophomore at Tesoro High School, enrolled in Honors and Advanced
Placement courses.
