She went through a lot to become the champion she is. At one of her old gyms, the coaches told her she needed a nose job, and she became very insecure and continued to ask her mother if she was pretty. She later moved to Iowa away from her family to train with an olympic athlete trainer in Iowa, to pursue her olympic dream. The family she lived with while she was there (her "host family") is a big part of her life.
