On going to therapy: “I’ve learned it’s okay to ask for help if you need it. One of the very first sessions, I didn’t talk at all. I just wouldn’t say anything. I was like, ‘I’m not crazy. I don’t need to be here.’ I thought I could figure it out on my own, but that’s sometimes not the case. And that’s not something you should feel guilty or ashamed of. Once I got over that fact, I actually enjoyed it and looked forward to going to therapy. It’s a safe space.”

On competing at 24: “I’m not a little girl anymore. It’s definitely up to me. Nobody’s forcing me. Whenever you’re younger, you feel like it’s a job, and you have to be pushed. But now it’s like, This is what I want to do, so that’s why I’m here.”

On potentially retiring after Paris 2024: “I’ve already done quite a lot, but I’m still trying to reach new heights and see what I’m capable of. I’m just really excited to see what’s out there in the world and to see what else I’m good at. My coaches Cecile and Laurent are from Paris, so I think that would be a good run to end with them there. I’ll see where we go.”

On when she feels most like herself: “Drinking a margarita at a Mexican restaurant. That’s me.”
