"I am proud to call myself a Colonial gymnast because I have the opportunity to be a part of something truly amazing. I get to learn from and work with talented, hard-working people who push me to become a better person every single day. My team brings out the best in me, and we all share respect, dedication, and commitment to each other and our sport. We are more than a team, we are a family, and I take pride in being able to be so close with others that share my goals to excel in the classroom, in the gym, and throughout life. A colonial gymnast not only represents themselves, but they represent their team and school and everything they stand for. Even through tough times and bad days, a Colonial gymnast keeps a positive attitude and holds their head high. I am honored to be held to these high standards and be a part of something much greater than myself. I am proud to be a Colonial gymnast."
