Favorite memory from your years at APEX:

My favorite memories from my years at APEX are the team sleepovers after our home meet. Even though these are not created in the gym, I always have a blast with my teammates at the sleepovers along with breakfast for dinner at IHOP.

Your Favorite Meet:  My favorite meet is our home meet.

Which skill was the toughest for you to learn?

The toughest skill for me to learn was twisting on floor.

What do you have planned for the future?

I plan to major in Biology during college and to either work as a Veterinary Technician or as a lab tech.

Do you have any words of advice for younger gymnasts?

My advice for younger gymnasts would be to enjoy your time at APEX and to always have fun. Don’t focus on the negatives such as falling at a meet and instead enjoy competing and being a part of a team. APEX is one of the closest teams I have been a part of and couldn’t have gotten where I am today without
