The sport of tennis has been a huge part of my life since the age of seven; I will always be grateful for the experiences, memories and friends that I have made throughout my career. The game taught me discipline, dedication, patience and how to be a leader.

My time at Cleveland High School will always stand out to me as a momentous time in my life, not only for our team’s accomplishments but for the time spent on the court with my teammates, coaches and competitors.

My family has always supported me unconditionally throughout my life, on and off the court, they are the reason for my success and I will always be thankful.
