Little Vegan Athletes: The Art of Jumping

Aya Rawlins is always showing off on the rope scene with her team aka the Greenbelt Sity Stars at community events including the recent Fit Fathers Day!

The 11-year old has been 100% vegan since 4 years old and is now is a top jump roper in just seven months on her double dutch team. They practice three to five hours a day on weekends and two hours during the week. This spring Aya was on four sport teams including Basketball, Jump Rope and two Soccer teams. Three times a week she went to tow practices back-to-back and on Saturdays jumped three to five hours then played in her soccer game right after. Sunday was another round of dual games.

Her main fuel was bananas, smoothies and brown rice. Welcome to the world of a vegan athlete!
