Growing up, I did not think I could ever be athletic. I was always the smallest person in my class and would always get trampled in traditional sports. In highschool, I discovered the AOA and realized that even I could excel in something that I previously thought I just wasn't built for.
I have been a member for 10 years now and have learned discipline and self reliance through our Arms Guild. I have learned so much about myself by learning stage combat, fencing, and other martial arts. I am now a healthier and more active person thanks to this wonderful community.
Pictured above is Viscount Melissa Storm (Joan of Arc) during our 2015 Human Chessboard performance. She hopes that by sharing her own experience that others will be equally determined to improve themselves and exceed their own expectations.
