Coming from an immigrant family with limited means, I was taught very early on that there are no barriers to our truest desires to succeed. At the age of 14, I ran my first marathon and discovered there truly are no limits when our heart desires the highest challenge. Since then, I have completed over 300 races of all distances around the world seeking to challenge myself in the roughest terrains, highest elevations to find my internal power, strength, and speed. Through my efforts of training and racing, I reached my 100th marathon milestone with over half as Boston Qualifying times by the age 28 making me one of the youngest in the world to complete the feat. I share my journey with others to demonstrate passion does achieves dreams. As a high school biology educator for eight years, I aim to give back to the community by teaching and coaching our inner city youth in Los Angeles. With each day that passes, I will continue to challenge myself on my relentless path to find my truest potential and demonstrate anything is possible.
