Having received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Athletic Training and Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling, both from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri, our Miss Seafair 2017-18 Axa Molina is currently working on her Masters of Science Degree in Professional Counseling at Grand Canyon University. Her career goal is to become a sports psychologist with a University athletic department. Toward that goal, Axa has worked as an academic advisor to student athletes, focusing on those in the lower 10% academically and on the verge of probation, ineligibility, loss of scholarship, or being dismissed altogether. Having competed in Women’s Wrestling on the collegiate and international level (Rio Olympic Trials Qualifier in 2016), she is currently serving as the Assistant Coach for Women’s Wrestling at Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen, Washington.
Axa represented Hispanic Seafair and the Latino Community Fund, and is proud to be the second Miss Hispanic Seafair to become Miss Seafair. She works tirelessly to promote self-esteem and empowerment to girls and young women as an Ambassador for Wrestle Like a Girl, a non-profit organization. In her own words:
“Wrestling is not just done on the mat. We wrestle every day to balance our work life and our family life. We wrestle to work for studies and obtain our degrees. Or, if you are like me, you wrestle with the voice that whispers ‘I can’t’. Today, I stand before you as a confident young woman and a testament to what wrestling can do for a girl. Not only will Wrestle Like a Girl teach your daughters to wrestle physically, but we will show them to believe they can breathe fire.”
