First I would like to thank God for always protecting us when we step in the ring/mat, without him nothing would be possible. Second my parents for always supporting me in anything I do and always being by my side. Also my friends and family that goes to my fights and show their support.
As well as my Head Coach Gerson Schilipacke for coaching me and training me all this years and pushing me to my limits. My strength and conditioning trainer Natasha Creger of T-Fit for working with me to get my weak areas stronger. My bjj coaches and teammates for pushing me and being there for me as well. Without any of you my dreams of being a fighter in Muay Thai/Bjj wouldn’t be possible. Thank you!
