Ascencio-Gomez started freestyling when she was 15 and has since become the No. 4 ranked female in the sport in the country.
"Throughout the first couple years of my journey, I wasn't competing, I was just training," Ascencio-Gomez told us. "It was more of a hobby for me. In 2019, I did my first USA championship and that was the first year female freestylers had their own competition separate from the males."
