Describe your personality in two words
ON THE ACADEMY...
How do you balance your athletics, academics and military duties?
Time manage is the key. I always try to stay ahead of my classes doing a little work every day for each class, and I get big assignments done days before they are due. When I am in the gym, I only focus on gymnastics. Gymnastics is my relief from the hill, and it gives me a break from the hectic life.
