"My teammates, coaches, and time here at GW have done more that just train me as a gymnast; it has trained me for my future. It has taught me how to persevere through whatever circumstances I encounter. Being a GW gymnast has prepared me for other real life experiences by teaching me how to balance a hectic schedule, by encouraging me to successfully work with all different types of people, and by allowing me opportunities to strive for and achieve diverse and important goals. It has helped me develop character tat will make me extremely competitive and qualified for whatever challenges are to come."
