Guadalupe started boxing when she was ten years old, after watching a Manny Pacquiao fight and marveling over his movements and footwork. Her cousin owned a gym, so her godparents took her to try it out. Boxing caught her interest because it forced her to constantly learn new things and meet new people. It made her feel like she was the only one in the ring. Between high school and joining the World Class Athlete Program, Guadalupe attended international tournaments in Taiwan, Poland, and Bulgaria. She feels honored knowing she can represent the United States Army while competing in a sport she loves—and as a 2020 Olympic Trials Gold Medalist looks forward to competing in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

To be a champ you have to believe in yourself when nobody else will.
