Why do you attend MMA? To better build my college application and to carry on my stepfather’s MMA legacy
What is the most important thing you have learned so far at MMA? Always be able to adapt to new situations. Never stress out over little things, and always focus on the big picture.
What advice do you have for new cadets? Do not overthink. I know it’s easier said than done, but every single cadet leader is here to help you in every way possible. If you’re stressed or have concerns, talk to them, and they’ll help you through it.
Is there anything you want other cadets to know about you? This is my fourth and final year attending MMA, and I hope to make it great for all of you.
