THE SHORT STORY
Starting this sport at only 7 years old in my beautiful home spot Alacati, I always dreamed of becoming one of the sailors who were up on the podium holding up their trophies. When I first started windsurfing, it was just about having fun and spending time on the water. When I first met my trainers: Jimmy Diaz and Cagla Kubat, they showed me the adrenaline of racing, and the passion for this sport, and taught me to work with discipline to achieve my goals. Yet, I still have a long way ahead of me to accomplish what I dream of: becoming the PWA women's world champion one day.

WHAT DO I DO BESIDES WINDSURFING/WINGSURFING
Besides windsurfing, I am currently in ninth grade hoping to study engineering in college. I also love to play tennis and bake for my friends and family!
