“I’ve been honored to be apart of a Squad of the most incredible women I’ve ever met, I’ve gotten to see the world and share locker rooms with some of the most talented women I know, some of which I’ve made lifelong friendships with.

And between the locker room and those fans, I felt like I belonged there and I’m so grateful for that feeling.”
