“As it was only my first year competing at the Olympia and still being new to the scene, I wasn’t expecting anyone to stop by my table at the meet the Olympians event.

Seeing that people were actually stopping by and asking for pictures and autographs was a humbling experience for me. Knowing that you can inspire and motivate people from all walks of life has to be one of the most gratifying feelings you can come across. “
