My Story

I was born into an active lifestyle. My parents loved the outdoors and transmitted that to me and my younger siblings at an early age. I learned how to waterski and wakeboard at the age of four, and by the time I was ten I’d decided I wanted to be a professional wakeboarder. I competed at a couple of international competitions, dominated the national scene and had a handful of sponsors. When I was thirteen I started kiteboarding as a hobby. This is where I met my current coach, who convinced me to start sailing. By the time I was 15, I was balancing school with wakeboarding competitively and sailing. As I started to sail more, I started to wakeboard less, until I stopped at the age of sixteen. My plans had changed, I went from wanting to be a professional wakeboarder to wanting to be an olympic sailor. After winning the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games in the Hobie16, I joined the Nacra 17 Olympic Campaign at the age of 16, and attempted to qualify Guatemala for the 2020 Olympic Games.
