Ayaka began coaching at Gold Star in the summer of 2021. She is CPR and First Aid certified. Ayaka was a cheerleader from the time she was a toddler, joining our GSG All-Star Cheer team in middle school and was a member of our nationally acclaimed squads for three years. She now helps mentor youth cheerleaders, and spends her free time with her pet Agni – a female snake who was sold to her as a male snake. So a very trendy gender fluid reptile!
