Toja first got involved with archery after trying out a friend’s bow.¬† From the first arrow she¬†shot, she knew that she needed her own bow.¬†¬†She went out and got one and ever since then, her family has been integral to her success.¬†¬†With her family¬†supporting and encouraging her, along with the myriad of archery knowledge shared with her by Dejan Sitar, she’s grown much as a professional archer.
Toja’s competition bow of choice is the Conquest 4, and¬†her most memorable moment so far is competing in and winning her first big archery competition.
Some of her recent accomplishments include the following:
- 2011¬†¬†¬†¬† Indoor Archery Championship- Spain¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 2nd place

To any up-and-coming archers, she would like to share with you her motto. ‚ÄúHard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard‚ÄĚ.
She loves shooting archery and competing, but in her spare time when she’s not pulling a bow back, she enjoys training for gymnastics.
