In high school, I won 2nd in Illinois State for the 4x200 and 8th in the 4 x 400 and we still hold the record for the fastest time at the high school! Track was a huge part of my life and I loved it so much that I considered training for the 2020 Olympics. Although it was my passion, I ultimately chose design & will be watching the Olympics from my couch.
