Taekwondo has given me a chance to express myself in a way the average human cannot. This sport has given me the opportunity to be unique, to network, and overall give me a different outlook on life. I have gained more confidence in myself, and have learned what hard work really is. My short term goal is to be able to learn how to keep processing information during my fights and to be able to look at things in the perspective of my coach. My long term goal in Taekwondo is to keep growing within the sport competitively and keep advancing my knowledge of the Taekwondo art in the Dojang. I have also been blessed with making great friends and acquaintances within the Taekwondo community and hope to keep networking within the sport.
