Once I found out that there was something about myself that was holding me back. I slowly left the racing world after realizing that I am gay and that there did not feel like a welcoming place in motorsports for an LGBTQ+ person like myself at that time. After spending a few years out of the industry, I have realized that I will always be an athlete and that I am ready to build a place for myself and with the support of Racing Pride, hopefully help others feel accepted no matter what makes them different. Be different. Be you.
