I started fencing in eighth grade after dancing and training as a gymnast for nine years. When I found out that one of my gymnastics teammates starting fencing, I was curious to see what it was all about so I visited NWFC and I was instantly hooked. Since then, NWFC has become my second home. I’ve become close with all my teammates and coaches—they’re people I care about very much and will care about for years to come. I will miss everyone at NWFC when I leave for college, but am excited to continue fencing at Caltech!
