“A true competitor works the hardest, cares the most, and makes the best of what they have.”

"Winning doesn’t always mean getting first place; it means getting the best out of yourself."

“Approach every day with a smile. Good or bad, your attitude can make a difference. No matter what happens in a competition I always remind myself to smile before bed.”
