I am a long distance athlete from Trinidad and Tobago. I come from a family of runners and I started running at the age of 5. I am the national record holder of the 5000m (16:01), 10,000m (33:11), Half Marathon (1:15:13) and Marathon (2:43:14). I received athletic scholarships to Colby Community College (2007-2009) and Wichita State University (2009-2011), earning All-American Honors in Cross Country, Indoor Track (5000m) and Outdoor Track (10,000m). In 2012, I missed the olympic qualification standard for the marathon by 14 seconds. I continue to pursue my olympic dream.
