High school goals: "When I first started high school, I was home-schooled to give me more free time because gymnastics was a big part of my life. I set really high goals to earn straight A's and always focus on school work. In gymnastics, I wanted to stay consistent and to earn a scholarship, which I achieved in the long run."
Life goals: "To always stay positive in everything and to always look at the bright side."
On choosing to sign with Pitt: "Ultimately, I chose Pittsburgh because of the education I am going to receive, and when I got there, I loved the campus. My coaches are amazing, along with the girls. Everything is just perfect."
Role model: "One of my old coaches, Mollie Caragol. She really just pushed me and inspired me to keep going with everything even when it got hard."
