When and why did you start training for fighting? I took some boxing classes in 2012, but just for fun. I didn't take it seriously until I finished my schooling. I was very focused on that until I finished. In 2015 I got into the working life and I started fighting while I was working.

What titles have you held? LFA strawweight title.

Do you have any heroes? My mom.

What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means that dreams can be possible. Eight years ago I thought this was something completely impossible, but I kept trying and trying. And today I am here, and I came to stay.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I have a Psychology degree.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was working in a restaurant as waitress.
