Skating has always been a major area of interest to me.
My academic schedule is lighter this year because it's an Olympic year.
I'm a competitive person and I love the challenge of mastering new things.
I eat a variety of foods like vegetables, fruit and beef for protein and iron.
My family has always been there to support me along the way. My coach, John Nicks, is a great influence.
I want to be the first lady to land a quadruple jump in competition. As I grow older, I know that my skating style will develop and mature.
Follow your dreams, work hard, practice and persevere. Make sure you eat a variety of foods, get plenty of exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
My training has been going really well these past few days and my goal is to keep it up for the next few weeks and hopefully earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.
I worked with my coach to develop some new spiral variations to make my program more interesting. Each one is different and you'll have to wait until January to see them.
A year ago I had a back injury and followed a good nutrition program to help speed up my recovery. I focused on exercise and staying healthy in order to get back out on the ice.
