NEU/Soneca BJJ-Everilton Silva
Andrea began her journey in BJJ in 2011. A serious injury took her off the mats from September 2013 to April 2014. Once recovered, she took 3rd at Adult Worlds as a White Belt in 2014. August 2014 marked the start of her Blue belt journey. IBJJF, NAGA, Good Fight, & Grapplers Quest are tournaments she has participated in. She is an international competitor and medal holder.
“The best part, however, is the people you meet and the connections you make.”
She is a contributor/writer for Jiu Jitsu Times, a personal trainer & owner of Aya’s Eats – a meal prep service, and a contributor for Dan Fagella’s Science of Skill on Jiu Jitsu and fitness related content. When able, she enjoys volunteering, working tables and refereeing for IBJJF, Dragon’s Lair, and Tap Cancer Out.
