I was born in Montreal, Canada, a beautiful multicultural city, on April 8th of 1994. My father being from a Moroccan decent, mother being from a Croatian descent, they couldn’t have picked a greater place to have me grow up in. Ever since I can remember, I was always involved in sports. Whether it would be dancing with my mom at her dance classes, or training with my dad at the gym, I was always active. At the age of four, both my father and mother decided to place me into Karate at Tristar gym. They thought I had way too much energy! All I can say is thank you so much to my parents for giving me the opportunity. Placing me in that gym is what got me to where I am today. I have grasped throughout the years and being brought up by not only my mother and father, but by my grandparents as well. Their sacrifices, love and their undying support has molded me into the young man I am today. Due to my family, I’m determined to be the best I can be in all my endeavors.
Since then, I haven’t stopped training and currently pursuing a career in boxing and mixed martial arts fighting. I have competed in numerous tournaments in all types of martial arts practices, as well as having done all types of sports. From dancing, cheerleading, rugby, football and soccer, I have been able to find what I love. Fighting. Not only to fight/compete but also to be the best in the world and loving the process of it all. The preparation for these fights includes the regiments of fitness to nutrition, to biomechanics and anatomy. This is what has driven me to pursue my education in the fields of Athletic therapy, nutrition and anatomy.
My courage, determination, and passion bring me the fuel I need to pursue the enjoyment of challenges and future projects.
