I knew I could compete and I knew others could compete, it’s just a thrill. There were a lot of people that inspired me in the past and in the present. It’s nice to have my family here, my neighbors and my cousin have come up to watch me and a lot of people from my home club that were playing in it, so it feels nice, it’s cool.”
