When you were 17, what did you want to be?
I wouldn't say that I knew. I knew that I was passionate about sports, and a career in something athletic sounded really good. But also, I always wanted to see the world. With synchronized swimming, from a young age I started traveling the U.S. a lot, and it just sparked my curiosity. I really wanted to go abroad, but I was doing sports so much that I couldn't even do a summer Europe trip or something, but the second I could get abroad I did.
