How I got my start: I played baseball as a pitcher since I was 8, then went on to track and field to initially run. One meet, I decided to pick up a javelin for the first time and throw because I wasn’t feeling good to run. I got third place in that meet and that’s where the javelin journey began.
Future goal: Go to Robert Morris University to major in sports psychology and throw javelin on the track and field team. My goal is to be a sports psychologist for a professional NBA or NFL team.
