At the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, the Morton Ranch High School product became the first Black woman to ever win a gold medal in wrestling.
She told ABC13 that one of the many people who impacted her along her championship journey is her mother, Shonda Wells. Mensah-Stock had planned to use her Olympic prize money to purchase her mother a $30,000 food truck.
During a Zoom interview exclusively with ABC13 last August, Wells learned Cruising Kitchens, operated by Houston native Cameron Davies, planned to design, build and donate a $250,000 food truck to Shonda.

Last weekend in San Antonio, Wells and Mensah-Stock took their first look at the P’lickles Famous BBQ food truck.
“Adam, it hasn’t even hit me yet that I won the Olympics – so the food truck: it’s beyond fathomable,” Mensah-Stock told ABC13’s Adam Winkler during an interview. “This is truly going to be life-changing for our entire family. The struggle was real, and now Cameron has made a way for us. It’s a dream come true. No way on earth could I have ever, ever, ever come up with something like that. It’s truly a blessing. God is good all the time.”
Mensah-Stock said her mother plans to operate her new food truck in the greater Houston area.
