General Interest

She crashed into the ninth hurdle during her semifinal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and was eventually ranked 22nd. "It honestly took me the whole semester of school [in the following year to get over the disappointment]. I didn't want to be on campus [at the University of Kentucky]. I didn't want to be around nobody because I'd rather that happen at a little meet than at the Olympics, I knew I had to wait four more years. I felt embarrassed, like I let the whole country down, but I also received a lot of love. Everybody was so supportive and proud of me for making it, being so young and getting out there representing Puerto Rico. I'm not going to let this race determine my future." (, 21 May 2018)

Born in the United States of America, she is eligible to represent Puerto Rico through her mother. "She wanted me to run for Puerto Rico because she never got to do it when she was younger. I wear it with pride." (, 21 May 2018;, 14 Jun 2016)
