My name is Samantha. I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Winona, MN. My childhood was full of many activities with my 4 sisters and amazing parents. But as a young girl, my favorite activity was gymnastics. My parents were consistently pushing me to become the best gymnast I could. I remember spending hours at the gym each week becoming stronger and better. I committed myself to that sport and it showed. Before I knew it I made it to the top team. Competing was my life, in fact it was more than 10 years of my life, and I can’t thank my parents enough for never giving up on me. Without their support and time I wouldn’t be where I am today.
