Personal Statement: I started Taekwondo when I was 8, but I was unable to continue due to my family’s financial situation at the time. Twenty years later, I decided it wasn’t too late to give up on my dream of Taekwondo. I love the sport for its challenge, its messages, and, most of all, how it pushes me to be a better version of myself than I was the day before. Now, having reached 1st Dan, I plan to continue my training for as long as I can and help pass on the teachings of Taekwondo to the next generation.
