#Stayactive is not easy but it is fun!
What inspired you to become an ARM at the YOG?
I was already sharing the lessons I had learned in my career in Puerto Rico with people in schools, churches and sometimes in companies, encouraging them to always fight for their goals. I thought the role of an ARM was a great opportunity for me to take this sharing experience to another level. The chance to be surrounded by elite athletes, aspiring to stand on the Olympic podium as I did, was impossible to ignore.
How much did you know about the YOG before you applied for the role?
I was aware of the YOG Nanjing 2014 and was impressed by the idea, because it is such a great opportunity for young athletes to compete at this level so early in their career. I had to wait until I was an adult before I went to the Olympic Games, but this new generation can now begin their own Olympic journey when they are teenagers.
