I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.
The Olympics: not one of my better memories.
I got a bronze medal and I can't complain about that, the only African-American to get a medal in the Winter Olympics.
My mother introduced me to many different things, and figure skating was one of them. I just thought that it was magical having to glide across the ice.
Just because you didn't start out perfect doesn't mean you can't have an excellent result in the end.
My skating is a very emotional thing that comes from the heart, never doing it for the medal.
I wanted to be a doctor since I was five.
I was always very strong in math, physics and calculus.
I've got this thing with skating and school - to see how much I can accomplish.
What was most important to me at the Olympics was going out there and performing my best. When I messed up the first jump combination, which was my big move, it hit me that I messed up the program of my life.
Being an Olympian, I always have this strong belief in excellence.
I am not really sure how I got interested in medicine.
I watch a lot of professional skating, and I am really looking forward to going to nationals.
I would make my mom buy me the toy doctor kit.
For as long as I can really remember, I wanted to be a doctor.
