I come from a country that walked the moon. I was bred to demand independence. I was taught to be brave. I was shaped into a molding of courage and strength, not just physically, but mentally. I was told to be myself, and to not do what everyone else thought i should.
I was bred to protect. And i eventually figured out that i prefer to protect others over myself. I eventually decided to make myself stronger, and better, not just as an athlete, but as a person.
Im not here to step on toes. Im not here to prove anything. Im here because i want to be. I do this because i know that i can and i want to push myself to that limit. Im here to teach myself to overcome mountains and challenges, and to teach myself how to take a hit. When you ask why,
Im going to respond with something i always hear Everest climbers say
"Because its there."
