I'm super excited. I really wanted to just do two good programs, which I did. Instead, I'm walking away with a medal.

The lights went out and it just kind of took everything away. It didn't make me nervous because it was kind of like a freak thing, so I just kind of went out and did my thing, and it worked.
I'm so excited. I just really wanted to have two good performances, which I did. To be standing on the podium in first place was just the best feeling.
I keep waiting to wake up and for it all to be a dream. I guess it hasn't sunk in yet. This has given me so much confidence for the future. I can't wait to see what's ahead for me.
We're very happy about the scholarship award.
