After watching the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games, I started to dream about the moment 6 years later, when I would be in Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Of course, dreams may not always come true, but I like to remember that if you strive, you will thrive. To be at the top of the Olympic podium is such a great honor. Watching the opening ceremony last night gave me determination to win the Olympics–the Olympics seem so far, yet so close. The desire keeps me going.
