I believe my motivation comes from knowing that I can always push myself to be better. I never want to settle, as I know that each day if I put in the effort I can improve myself to the point where I can accomplish anything. One quote that has motivated me throughout my career is from Jerry Rice: "Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't."
My lifetime goals are to compete for the United States at the 2022 and 2026 Winter Olympics. I hope that one day I will be the best in the world.
I am interested in traveling, exploration, and always pushing the limit on things. With this mentality, I am able to push myself outside of my comfort zone to create memories that I will always remember. I believe that traveling and exploring have helped me to form relations with people from other countries and enabled me to become more versatile in various situations. In addition to this, it has also enabled me to create life long friends as well as some amazing experiences.
