My primary goal was to coach the U. I personally spend just an unbelievable amount of time watching YouTube videos. That in itself is a bit of an art. I need to know all of the routines for basically every gymnast in the world competing in the Olympics, roughly athletes. I need to know what they do on the four events for the women and the six events for the men. The major parts, at least, because if something unreal is coming up, I want to be able to set it up.
A lot of times, I personally ask. We try to get very close, and we try to be unified. I was trying to find some information on a top coach one time, and I just started with his name and a couple of stats, and I landed on a guy completely nude with a samurai sword.
I was a little afraid that it was him at first, but then I zoomed in on the face and it was not the coach. Those are two completely different things.
I go to different blogs. I spoke with the athlete directly — a prominent athlete from a very prominent European team — and she confirmed the whole thing and was laughing and then told me a couple of other things.

I just started doing Twitter a few weeks agobecause it was overwhelming for me, all of the different things I have to check.
But now I find little tidbits there. I was second to last up and could feel my nerves getting to me. I just wanted to get it over with. As I was ready to step on to the floor, my dad gave me a thumbs up.
I gave him a quick smile and walked onto the floor. My music began and I tried my best to keep up with the music. I landed my first pass and I could hear my dad cheering in the background. It gave me the motivation I needed to finish. Although, I stumbled on my leap pass, I was able to charm the judges with my last pose and smile. After everyone was done, all the teams gathered on the floor for the award ceremony.
I got so excited when my name was called.

I ended up walking away with four participation ribbons. I remember getting those a lot when I was younger. But I stuck with it. Slowly, I got better and through my hard work and persistence I was able to transform from a spunky little girl flipping on couches to a NCAA Division I student-athlete at the University of Maryland.
After all these years, that memory has always stuck with me because I believe it was the stepping-stone to my gymnastics career, which eventually lead me to a full scholarship. The first month was a huge transition period — not only were we expected to practice and go to classes, but we had to endure six weeks of rigorous boot camp to get us into shape.
It was a cycle but once I got into the routine, it became the norm. In the gym I was preforming the way the coaches expected and was on track to compete in the all-around. By the time boot camp was over we were getting ready for our first intrasquad. I remember the day clearly, it was a fall November day, we were having our first team event — which mean the best six girls practice in an ordered line up and have a mini competition to see if they would be the ones to compete on that event.
We were on vault. I was second in line up. I saluted and started running down the runway. I came down with locked legs and heard a crunch. I instantly started screaming and grabbed my knee. The trainer came running over and she knew I had dislocated my knee. Luckily, my knee went back in place but I had to go see the doctors right away. When I saw the doctors, they told me I had to get surgery. They told me once it dislocates, my knees has a greater chance of dislocating again. I had worked so hard, I went through the hard part and just when season was around the corner I got hurt.
I went into surgery Dec.

They told me it would be easy and I would only be sidelined for six weeks. By the time I finally woke up, they told me it was worse then what the MRI had shown. I needed a second surgery. This time I gave them permission to fix whatever they needed so I could get back into the gym as soon as possible. Yet, my recovery time was eight months, I would have to miss my entire freshman year.
At the time of my injury, I was truly devastated. I felt like I let my team down and because of that I fell into depression. In treatment it seemed like every time I was rehabbing my knee, I got frustrated. It would take me two times as long to do anything. Gymnastics was another struggle because it was my outlet of bonding with the team and when I got hurt I felt like that was stripped away from me. It took the whole summer that year for me to start becoming myself again.
I slowly began to appreciate all the little steps in my recovery process. Every small accomplishment brought me closer to getting back to gymnastics. I found happiness when I got my brace off, when I could start running and when I could start doing gymnastics again. Each year that passed I got better and better. In my last year of gymnastics, the university switched over to the Big Ten Conference. It was an exciting time for our team. The Big Ten meant that we would get more recognition, compete against top schools and show everyone that we can be just as good as them.
