BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE RECIEVED: The best advice I’ve ever received was from my dad. He told me, “Beamans never quit. A loss is a loss, but when you quit, you become a failure. That is why we never quit.” And that has pushed me to win and never give up when competing.
GOALS FOR REST OF THE SEASON: I want to become the national champion.
