"Being a member of the George Washington University Gymnastics team and being a student at this university has allowed me to experience and learn all that it takes to be a successful person. On the GW Gymnastics team we learn that nothing in life is handed to us. If we want to accomplish a certain goal, it is within us to approach it with a positive attitude and put forth all the hard work necessary to persevere through obstacles towards achievement. As a member of this team I have learned that individual commitment to a group effort is what drives a team's ability to succeed. I have learned to direct my individual abilities towards common goals. I am fortunate to have been able to be a member of the GW Gymnastics team over the past four years. Through the lessons that I have learned here and the experiences I have been apart of I am confident in my ability to succeed in the future and take on any challenge that comes my way. "
