I am also a State Qualifier in the NCS/OS Section in Wrestling. I've been training all my life and it made me opportunities that I would never imagine that would happen to me. Although I am an athlete, it doesn't mean that I'm not a student neither. I currently hold a 4.0GPA through independent studies and I've been holding my GPA since I transferred.

I underwent 3 surgeries which took a toll on me mentally, physically, and academically. I missed most of my sophomore year and even my wrestling season. But never has it made it to where I would give up on my career altogether, after I transferred to Vallejo high I had maintained a 4.0 GPA, I Made a comeback in my wrestling career being the only girl in varsity and captain. I made it all the way to state and even started to get college recognization. The reason why I'm Applying for this scholarship is to help me achieve more of my goals and to make a bigger name for myself and be the first person in my family to graduate College.
