It is an absolute honor to receive this scholarship from Afa and the Usos Foundation. They are helping me one step at a time to try to achieve my dream of being a pro wrestler and along they way I am learning a whole different meaning of the word "family". I remember the 1st time I saw Wrestling on TV, I watched The Rock deliver a Rock Bottom to Rikishi in the middle of the ring. I find it amazing how now I am training underneath Pops' guidance and teachings. It's hard to believe that it was not destiny that made this possible.
When I was younger, everyone would shoot down my dream of becoming a pro wrestler. If you were to ask my friends and family 10 years ago if they thought I would ever be this far along towards reaching my dream they would've thought you were delusional. I love that I can now stand here today and prove all of them wrong. I went through a very dark time before Afa and Mom awarded me this scholarship. I had lost 3 of my best friends within 3 weeks, popped 3 of the tires on my car with no money to pay for them, and my family got foreclosed on our house, and then one day I was stuck outside my house in the cold and rain for an hour straight. I had to punch a hole through a glass window in order to let myself back in. When I got inside I lay down and passed out as I thought to myself... can it get much worse than this?
