I put a lot of pressure on myself just because I hate losing more than I love to win.
There's just something about fighting that just makes sense for me. I do it because of the fun, the thrill behind it... the adrenaline. I guess I'm an adrenaline junkie.
I was bullied in high school. I went through a very traumatic freshman year. And I want to be a voice for all the girls out there that went through similar stories, or went through similar trials. I lost my voice at that time and I lost completely who I was, and I was able to find that through fighting. And I just want to be a positive role model and show that just because your world is crumbling at that point and time, there's always a future to look forward to.
