What inspires you? 

What inspires me most is being able to inspire others. I train hard and at a high level to hopefully light a fire in other individuals who want to pursue their dreams, whatever it may be. The fruits of my labor have resulted is personal records, American records and overall a following of people of all ages who aspire to follow their dream as I am.

 

What are your athletic goals for this season? Current goal for the season is to run a 51 high in my 400 and 22 high in my 200. I also would like to compete at more international meets to build my athlete brand along with running fast against different competition.
