On September 10, 2023, I embarked on a journey towards my red belt in Taekwon-Do. The anticipation made me nervous, but my determination to give it my all prevailed. Watching all colour belts work hard and train for their grading filled me with excitement and curiosity. I am immensely grateful to our instructors, parents and everyone who offered their unwavering support.It was a fantastic opportunity to learn from our peers and witness their dedication.
Awesome job to everyone for giving their best, it was an unforgettable and truly awesome day.

On September 16, 2023, I had the incredible opportunity to participate in the CHITF NSW Taekwondo Championship. It marked my debut in the Australian taekwondo tournament scene, where I competed in both pattern and sparring events. The experience was enriching as I learned from my opponents and made new friends along the way. While I was admittedly nervous during sparring, I reminded myself to stay calm and think strategically. I am immensely grateful to the coaches, hosts, parents, fellow competitors, and the enthusiastic spectators who made this event memorable. This tournament served as a valuable learning experience, and I'm thrilled to share that I clinched the gold medals in both pattern and sparring categories. The journey from quarterfinals to finals in pattern and the challenging bouts in sparring were met with excellence by all participants. It's a moment deserving of a resounding round of applause, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
