ALL TOGETHER
She trains and studies at the National High Performance Centre [CNAR] in Mexico City, Mexico. She attends school online alongside her national teammates after an initiative of coach Blajaith Aguilar, who did not want the girls to spend time commuting back and forth to school from training. "We are together all the time. We eat, train and sleep together. And we all study online. We support and respect each other. This is a team sport and teamwork is very important."
