"By being a GW gymnast for the past three years, I have further matured, learned a great amount about discipline, and met some of the most amazing people. I've learned that I am capable of a lot more than I thought, by pushing myself to levels I never have. It gives me great confidence in that the life lessons, education, and relationships that I have developed at GW are ones that I will have the rest of my life! I will miss it all greatly."
