Look who made it on Utah Valley’s Fab 40!!

Each year, Utah Valley Magazine selects 40 fabulous people to represent the valley. Our AMYS Competition Team Member, Angelina, was selected to be on the Fab 40 list this year for her Taekwondo accomplishments making it on Team USA and becoming the number 1 ranked athlete last year!

Check out the video below to learn more about Angelina when she was 12 years old and set her goal! 

Angelina started her Martial Arts training at just 5 years old. Master Samy remembers she was a natural leader- always volunteering to be an example, shouting out with loud kihops, and putting in 100% effort and energy. Her motivation & discipline soon got her invited to be on the AMYS Extreme Team. From there, she started competing in tournaments, first at a state-wide then national level, earning a Gold Medal & US National Champion at just 6 years old. At 11 years old, she made a goal of making it on the US National Team and when she was 14 years old, she accomplished it.

Congratulations Angelina! We’re so proud of your outstanding efforts and representing AMYS!
