“My biggest inspiration is definitely my track family.
That’s my teammates, my coaches, and all of my supporters who show up at the most important meets I have.
Even in an individual sport you need that encouragement. There’ll be times when I have a lot of self doubt about what I can achieve on the track or in the classroom or in the workplace. There’s nothing like having people there to snap me out of it and make me believe in myself. It’s an incredible feeling.”
