How has Special Olympics changed your life? Special Olympics has filled my life with friends and playing sports that I love. I just love being with people, and playing sports together. When I was younger, I was afraid of many things. Special Olympics has given me courage to do or to try just about anything I want to.
What does attending USA Games mean to you? I have never been to the USA Games before, so this means so much to me. I look forward to training hard with my Team Wisconsin teammates to get ready to go and represent Wisconsin. It will be fun to see Orlando and meet so many new people and see new sights. And whether we win or lose, I will be proud to be part of the games!
