Biography

TRAINING: This is my first full fight camp not having to work a regular job as well, and I can honestly say I feel more ready than ever. I’ve been able to train so much harder and put every ounce of energy I have into each practice. 

Describe your current day-to-day life. Tell us about your family, job, etc.: Every day I wake up and go for a run before I go to work. I work Mon-Fri part-time at a warehouse. After work I get home I eat lunch and rest a bit; then it's off to the gym. I live with my boyfriend of three years who is also my head boxing coach. I also teach Taekwon-do at an inner city school two days a week which is the same school my little brother attends.

Why are you a fighter? Fighting is who I am not what I do. I have been in martial arts since the age of nine and it's all I know. I have always had to fight for what I want so it's nothing new to me.

Describe your upbringing: My father was incarcerated before I was born so I was raised by a single mom and grew up with my older sister. We didn't always have everything we wanted, but we had everything we needed. My mom struggled for years to give us the best life possible. She never has it easy. When I was just three months old my Uncle who we were living with at the time put my mom, sister and I in a shelter and left us there. But she didn't let that stop her from getting back on her feet. We lived with different friends and family for a while, but we eventually got our own place. My mom started her own business as a child care provider and started home schooling my sister and I when I was eight. 

What’s been the biggest challenge in your life? My biggest challenge in life this far has been able to continue chasing my dream to be a professional fighter. The past three years have been tough since my mom no longer supports my dream and I barely have a relationship with her anymore.

How do you want to improve your life? I would like to be able to better support my family. I would like to buy a house so I never have to move again and give back to all of those who have helped me get this far.

What does a UFC contract mean to you? A UFC contract would mean everything to me. It would allow me to do all the things I have worked for and dreamed of. It would mean I would no longer have to go to Mon-Fri dead end job and focus on being a better mixed martial artist and becoming the UFC champ!

Tell us something interesting about yourself: My story of coming from nothing and making it as far as I have with just the support of a few loved ones and the will to keep moving forward after I lost that support.
