Thank You!

I would just like to thank everyone for encouraging and supporting me on my way to making all my dreams come true! It really helps to know that I have so many people that care about not only what I do, but who I am. From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you for helping me make my dreams come true. I know that most of you think that you haven't done anything, but even by leaving a nice comment on my blog helps. (But, all the prayers help the most. 0;) There are many days that I am down and blue, but all I have to do is think of all of you "guys" that care about me.
I plan do be somebody one day, I do not know when or how, but I have in my head that, that is what I am going to do. I know that this will be a hard goal to accomplish not only physically, but mentally. But I am willing to do what it takes.

I just wanted you all to know how much it means to me that so many people from all over care about what i am doing! Thank you so much again!

God Bless You All!

Look out Barack, Hillary, and John.....

I am so proud of this Plaque! Out of everyone in the Freshman class, I was selected along with 7 other students to participate in the Model United Nations Debate at Hope College last Thursday and Friday. My partner was my friend Emily Jelsma. The guys teased us and laughed and said, "You two are a joke. You can't debate!" Thanks Mr. Stevens, for picking me!


There were schools from all over the midwest. Atleast 100-150 teams from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, all over. We debated on healthcare and over population. Our country was Benin.

I can't wait till next year! Look out boys! I'll take you in the ring, or on the debate floor-YOU PICK!

Where Warriors Dare Tournament of Champions, Detroit Michigan


Thank you so much Ronda Tire, Lowell, Michigan-For Believing in me!
Me with Grand Master Rosa, Founder of Where Warriors Dare

It was a great day in Detroit!

It was the Where Warriors Dare Tournament of Champions. I was the defending under blackbelt Grand Champion. The people there are so very nice. It is directed by Master Ric Curp and it was founded by Grand Master Rosa. I got to see some very nice people like Master Curp, GM Rosa, John Colwell, and the tall Master at the door(I didn't catch his name but He's awesome and very supportive.) First I competed in weapons and took first. Then, everyone in every division of weapons competed for Weapons Grand Champion. Guess What! I did my Talibong's and Sayow and Won! Then was the open hand forms competition. I took first in the 12-14 year old division under blackbelt. Then they held the Under Blackbelt Open Hand Grand Championship. I went against about 12 people in all open hand divisions and Guess What! I won! Even Better, Uncle David, Aunt Bev, Josh, and Sam came to watch......!
