My first contact with Jiu Jitsu was in 2008 ( I was 14 years old) and to be honest I didn't like it. I was the only girl on the mat and I felt very uncomfortable. So three years later when I was 17 I decided to give one more chance and I fell in love with the sport. I used to train twice a week, then three times a week... and when I realized I was going to the gym every day and doing 3 sessions per day lol Since then I haven't stopped training and I found out that I am a really good competitor, and since then I continue this journey.

My favorite part about Jiu Jitsu is that there is always a new challenge and something new to learn!

My biggest accomplishment in Jiu Jitsu is that I became a 5x IBJJF Black Belt World Champion.

My nickname Baby is not because I am the youngest one; it's because of the TV show DINOSAURS from the 90's. My dad gave me this nickname because every time he tried to hold me, I used to call my mom. Then my brother started calling me baby during the jiu jitsu classes and all my teammates did the same. People know me as Baby, some don't even know my real name.
