I started cheerleading back in 3rd grade. Back then, I only did high school cheer and gymnastics. A couple years later in 8th grade I started doing all star cheer, high school cheer and gymnastics. I had a couple of injuries in gymnastics that forced me to stop, but for some reason I couldn’t stop cheerleading. 2 years into all star cheer I made the national team in Puerto Rico, where I am from.

Press Sports has allowed me to show other athletes, coaches, schools and whoever uses the app what I can do.

Although I love my island and everyone there, I had to move on to somewhere I felt could challenge me more and bring out the best in me, so I moved with only half of my family to another country. I came to the US alone, having my brother already in the mainland and my mom following a month later. I made Top Gun all stars and my journey since then has only begun. It’s been a little over a year and I’m still growing as an athlete. Thanks to Press Sports I can be seen by other athletes, coaches, and schools. Press Sports has allowed me to show other athletes, coaches, schools and whoever uses the app what I can do. It gets my name and my talent out there, allowing me to have better opportunities.
