“There’s been a lot of ups and downs. Like, many times where I shouldn’t have scored the way I did, I should’ve done better. I finally ended at this point and it’s been very fun and I’m happy that it did happen. My team is really good, we are very dedicated and we support each other very much and we are very close and I am very proud to be a part of this team this year.”
