How did you get started?:I was a competitive dancer for all of my life. As my last season of college majorettes was coming to an end, I wanted to find another hobby that I could compete in. I joined a new club on campus called the SAE Baja Team. We built and designed off road cars to compete against other schools. The only downside was that the competition only happened once a year, and I was looking for something to do more frequently. When I found out about remote control car racing, I instantly convinced everyone on the team to get a car. RC racing can sometimes be a male-dominated sport, and at first I didn’t think that I would ever be good enough to compete with any of the guys. However, I put a lot of time and effort into improving my driving, and I am determined to show that girls can be competitive in the sport.
