About Me

heaven b. smith


Heaven B. Smith was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Heaven, currently a 12-year-old 7th grader, dreams of becoming a gymnastics coach. At the young age of six, Heaven began teaching herself the art of gymnastics, watching YouTube videos, and practicing what she observed. Her mom, Michelle Knight, continued to watch Heaven's talent grow, thus deciding to sign her up for gymnastics classes. Upon tryouts, Heaven was immediately accepted into level three as a competing gymnast. Currently, Heaven has maintained her place as one of the top 100 gymnasts in the United States, becoming #1 for her age group and level in the nation. Heaven Smith has her future mapped out. She plans to attend UCLA or LSU to become a gymnastics coach and teach young girls to achieve their goals of becoming gymnasts. Heaven is thinking about the Olympics, but for now, she is enjoying her journey as a budding author and creative.
