I don't know where to begin. Yesterday I repeated three things to myself all day. The first was that the Lord will only put things in front of me that I can handle. The second was one touch at a time and the third was that out of many I AM the one. It's been one long and difficult year. A lot of naysayers. A lot of people said I fell off, but I never lost sight of my goal. I really felt that everything I was going through would only make me stronger for this moment. Thank you to my family @julesmith001 @meeks1019 , to my friends who've stayed with me all the year and picked me up when I was down (a special shout out to @jpth75 whose kept me calm during our stay here and in between matches), to my fans old and new, and most importantly to my coaches and teammates. You pushed me to be better everyday and it's you that I rely on each day for support. I had one goal yesterday.. To inspire. I wanted children all over the world to look at my performance and see that all things are possible and that with the right amount of passion, hard work, and a lil bit of luck you too can be great. This is just the beginning. Thank you all again!
