At 21 years old, I found a life passion with paddle boarding. Bought my first all-around SUPATX LR8 board in 2009 without any knowledge about paddling. During this time, I was studying to become a doctor or possible textile fashion designer. Half a year later, I was in a battle for my life with igA Nephrotic Syndrome and Minimal Change Disease. I found that paddling would bring me back to earth and eased my mind. Lucky after three hard years of fighting, I was blessed to have found a way to control my kidney function and have been in remission since 2012. In summer 2014, I found the Austin CenTex SUP meetup group, learned about competitive paddleboard racing, SUPLife culture, found a new family, and officially became hooked.
