    The farthest places from home I've been are Spain and Holland.
    My favorite gymnastics memory was watching my coach receive cards from college coaches. I felt like everything had paid off.
    My favorite gymnastics event to compete on is floor.
    I committed to Rutgers over other schools because I fell in love with the people and the campus.
    When I was little I always wanted to be the Colombian president.
    After graduation I hope to go to the Olympics and get a job that will help me get my master's degree.
    The most influential person in my life is my mother.
    My favorite midnight snack is ice cream.
    An artist no one would believe I have on my iPod is Metallica.
    If I could spend a day with anyone in history, it would be Leonardo Da Vinci
    If you walked into my bedroom, the first thing you would notice is my bed full of “Tiggers.”
    If I could eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be breakfast!
    The best place at Rutgers is Livingston Campus.
    My favorite class at RU was Sport Marketing.
    A pre-meet ritual of mine is to pray to God to ask him for a fun and, most importantly, a safe meet.
    I hate to admit it, but I love to sleep. I rather sleep than do anything productive on my free time.
    If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be here, I love my life, I love New York City and I love the United States.
    If I could play any other sport at RU, it would be football not because I like it, not because I could ever dream of playing it, but only because I would do anything to perform in front of such a big crowd.
    My goals for the 2014 season are to help my team to be the best team of the EAGL conference, to qualify for Regionals and to be a role model in every aspect to my teammates.
