How many years have you been at APEX? 12 years
Favorite memory from your years at APEX? My favorite memories have been attending the team sleepovers at the gym. The nights were filled with fun and friends, and it was a great team bonding experience. We got to build forts in the gym with the gymnastics equipment to make a crazy place to sleep. It was a unique experience and I will never forget all the memories made.

Which skill was the toughest for you to learn? Free hip on bars
What do you have planned for the future? I’m hoping to get accepted into James Madison University to earn a bachelor’s degree in education. Once I graduate from college, I hope to become an elementary school teacher.
Do you have any words of advice for younger gymnasts? My words of advice for younger gymnasts are to never let mental blocks stop you. You have to learn to overcome it and not let it conquer you. Everyone gets mental blocks and they are difficult to deal with, but you just have to have the determination to work passed it.
