"Life has afforded me opportunities that I've been extremely fortunate to have been given. Those opportunities didn't come without sacrifice. Whether it was a solider giving their life to defend our freedom, those who endured unspeakable hardship to fight for equal rights for all, or my mom who did everything necessary to raise me by herself.
I compete to take advantage of those opportunities and to do what I can to provide them for my family and others."
Keir Simon, #WhyICompete
