Kayla Gomez is spending her days training for the 2024 Olympic Games. But the fighting did not start there. Kayla received treatment for epileptic seizures until the age of 5. With the treatment, Kayla outgrew epilepsy at age 5 and now she is a 13-time boxing national champion. In 2021, Kayla was named USA Boxing Youth Female Boxer of the Year. She earned a place on the United States National Team among 11 other fighters from across the country.
Kayla became the first gold medalist at the Junior Pan American games for Team USA last December. Her next goal is to attend the 2024 Olympic Games and be a gold medalist.
