This lifestyle will teach you things you never would have thought you would learn and it will open windows and doors you never thought would be open. The lifestyle of an athlete shapes an individual and makes them their own unique character. Gymnastics is my lifestyle. It has made my path, and with all the bumps and curves along the way, guided me to the person I am today.

Then I left my house, going to school with my school backpack on one shoulder, and my gymnastics bag on the other. The entire day was just plain nerve wrecking.
