Their Life, My Lens
Fun Facts of Movie
At the age of 13, I obtained my boaters license and bought my first Carolina skiff with my babysitting earnings. In the 7th grade, I was bullied for being the only girl in school who fished. When my mom found out she encouraged me to go off and do my own thing and not to follow others. This encouraging word is what gave me the valor to enter my first tournament. On that day I won and without hesitation, I give the winning prize money back to the tournament charity. At 15 I received the ladies’ IGFA catch cert 178 lb tarpon, it was only certified, meaning I wouldn’t and couldn’t kill that fish to be put in the IGFA books, in my opinion, it wasn’t worth it.
On my 18th birthday, I received my USCG captain’s license. In my sophomore year of high school, I and four other girls fished the super bowl of tournaments in our town. We won first place and the town turned upside down.
At this point, we began to visit schools, girl scouts, and churches to teach the basics of fishing. While teaching we would talk to each child individually about the critical issues of bullying and social media.
During a summer job teaching a fish camp I met Easton. This is when I discovered what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I immediately reached out to a boat company about making a customized boat that can fit a child-size wheelchair so I can help kids have an amazing experience. Yellowfin created a hybrid boat that I took to the College Bass Series and FLW Professional Bass Series.
In my sophomore year of high school, I was recruited to Savannah College Art and Design bass fishing team. At the time, they were the only all girl’s college bass fishing team. I now have my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Tv and Film. I was blessed in 2022 to host my own Tv show and show these kids ABILITIES not their DISABILITIES and will continue to do so with the help from our wonderful sponsors and supporters like you!!!
