"As a GW gymnast, I have been presented with many challenges and opportunities. I am challenged everyday to perform at my highest ability both in the classroom and in the gym. I am challenged to become a working member in the cohesive unit that is our team. But, I am also given the opportunity to work with an amazing group of teammates, coaches, athletic staff, and administrators on a daily basis. This group of individuals has provided a network of support that has been crucial to the achievement of each success that I have found here at GW. By overcoming the challenges and embracing the opportunities here at GW, I have slowly built a level on confidence within myself that can never be diminished or removed. Most importantly, as a GW gymnast, I am continuously challenged to seek and achieve success, and it is this lesson that ensures that I will continue this seek and achieve a successful life outside of GW."
