Next, I’d like to thank my coach, Tammy Gambill. My mom once asked me, “What is bigger than an ocean?” and I said, “A person’s heart”. Tammy has given me her heart. Without Tammy and her coach team, I will never shine.
Then. I’d like to thank Icetown in Riverside, California. The rink is cold, but it makes me feel warm like being home. I couldn’t survive being homeless.
After that, I’d like to thank those who have sponsored or helped me in many ways. I always appreciate their support. I have learned to have a generous heart and always lend a helping hand to those who need it.
Also I’d like to thank the judges. Just because they were picky on me, I was motivated to work harder and achieve more. I have to admit I feel nervous about them, so I love them from a distance.
And of course, I’d like to thank every athlete at Nationals. They have all shown their excellence and great sportsmanship. Every one of them had something for me to learn and catch up with, at least their age.
And I didn’t forget you, my hometown fans! Thank you for enjoying my skating, cheering for me and supporting me. I have never heard such loud cheering for myself in my life. No matter where I go, I know my hometown crowd is the best!
I look forward to this new season. I wish myself and all of my fellow athletes a successful season, full of challenges and joy. Happy Skating!
