Fencing Origin Story: "Initially I wanted to sign up for archery classes, but all the local programs had a wait lists of several years.  Instead, I decided to join my second choice extracurricular of fencing, which I had been introduced to through the Nickelodeon show iCarly."

Why I Love Fencing: "As someone who has never been interested in any other type of sport, I've always appreciated fencing's individualistic and strategic aspects.  Through my decisions on the strip and my work during practice, I get to be the sole determiner of whether I win or lose."

Advice: "Enjoy the hard work.  Be the first one there, the last to leave."

Notable results:

  • First Team USA athlete in history — women or man — to repeat as a Junior Epee World Champion (2022, 2023)
  • Bronze medal at 2023 NCAA Championships (as a freshman at Princeton University)
  • Won first senior medal (a bronze) at the 2024 Doha Grand Prix
