“Every year that I’m competing, I think things are evolving and changing with how I do things, especially with motivation,’’ she said. “I feel like I’m doing it because I want to do it and I love it, and there isn’t that pressure from anybody else.

“The journey isn’t over, but I definitely feel more settled in who I am today.’’
