I absolutely love being in touch with my fans. You all remind me what I love so much about gymnastics and I hope I can influence you positively with my decision to live actively and healthily. Someone else who has made these beneficial decisions is fellow superstar and two-time National Champion Figure Skater Ashley Wagner! Need I add she’s SOCHI BOUND!?! Although we compete in different arenas, the drive to succeed is the same. It’s our intuition to use our time doing the positive and healthy alternative, along with our determination and dedication to our sports that allows us to look at the big picture and make our dreams into a reality.
I loved all the support I got in my athletic endeavors from the Ask, Listen, Learn team and from all of my fans, so I wanted to extend that wish to Ashley! She’s got such a great attitude and our drive for a medal is what reminds us that our sacrifices and setting goals high was all worth it.
Are you an Ashley fan? You could win a US Figure Skating jacket autographed by her! All you have to do is take the PLEDGE then Instagram or tweet yourself using the hashtag #AskListenLearn. Show us where you hang up your pledge that tells peers you are confident in your decisions and resist peer pressure to say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking. Make sure to follow Ask, Listen, Learn on Twitter and Instagram, too. They’re a great addition to my social media feed! Check out this blog post for more details!
Ashley and I have a lot in common in terms of our decision to not underage drink and our commitment to staying active. I wish my fellow superstar the best of luck in Sochi and can’t wait to see her succeed!!
