2022 Legacy Scholarship Awardees
I adamantly believe that triathlon has made a significant impact on my life. It has completely changed the way I view the world and has even made me a better person. I enjoy working towards goals and being able to share that experience with other highly driven individuals. I am optimistic about my future in triathlon and grateful for all of the help along the way.
I was born and raised in Alberta Canada where my passion for biking first started (nothing like riding in the snow) and where soccer was my number one sport. After 12 years, my family moved to Hawaii, soccer was still my sport of choice and continued for the 3 years of life there. After Hawaii, we moved to Santa Rosa California where my passion for biking and interest in triathlons started. It was there that I officially picked up the sport of Mountain Biking and joined my high school team. I immediately fell in love with climbing hills and flying down crazy technical hills that were full of jumps, bumps, and bruises.
As my father is a triathlete this was his way of lighting the torch and opening up the ideas of triathlons. It took me a while to finally give in, but after moving to Las Vegas where the mountains were just not the same, I decided cycling it is. After indulging myself within the community and talking with others did the realities of triathlon really start to shape up. As someone who had a background in biking and a soccer upbringing, it was finally time to pick up swimming and put it all together.
