   Anxiety and depression have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. That feeling of inadequacy and over bearing stress of wanting to control every outcome in my life has not only affected my sports performances in the past, but also my relationships. There were truly times where I just didn’t feel like life was worth it anymore. Finally, after consecutive years of struggling I decided to do something about it and fight back. I sought out therapy, began meditating and finally began to love myself for who I truly am. Letting go of that need to control is still a battle I fight today but being conscious to breathe and to tell myself to “control what I can control” I have honestly begun to live a more fulfilling life. 

   On April 6, 2019 I will by fighting for all of those that have struggled with anxiety, depression and many more mental illnesses. Mental illness in America is under talked about and I need help getting that conversation started. I will be representing Mental Health of America (nonprofit) in my fight and couldn’t be more excited for the challenges ahead. 

Training has already begun!! 

I hope to see you on April 6th and even if you cannot go, any donation helps spread awareness for mental health!
