I have learned that I’m a much stronger person than I ever realized. I was a very insecure person growing up, and every year I feel a little bit stronger and more confident in who I am and I really do love it. Whether it’s the Olympics and looking back and saying, ‘That was not easy,’ I’m proud of myself. And then the experience with Dancing With the Stars, I guess I’m loving new experiences and growing and embracing my own strength. –x
