“I’ve been entering dj battles & battling men since I was 10yrs old, 4yrs later I’m here & very thankful… this year I placed 5th for @dmc_world online finals, made the top 6 for @goldieawards world final in Brooklyn New York, I didn’t make it to London for DMC world Supremacy due to no funding to get my flights, I had to crowd fund 5K for my flights to Krakow Poland for @idaworldofficial …”
