Always wear a smile because you never know who is watching.
Red certainly is the family color. From my mother and my grandmother, I've learned a lot of little tricks - the significance of color and lipstick being one of them. I started skating when I was eight years old, and my mom did my makeup for me back then.
I always start my breakfast out with oatmeal, because it's full of vitamin D, it's a great carb, and you can get, like, some fun flavors in there.
In skating there's always another jump or another spin variation or another thing to learn, and that's what I liked about it.
If I were packing for a deserted island, I would bring sunscreen, a water purifier, something to start a fire with, my sister, and something for protection.
Skating can make you feel athletic, graceful, beautiful.
I can't live without mascara and lipstick - every day.
It's just skating, and you're going to have a couple of mistakes. Even in practice, you're not hitting 100%.
I always wear my evil eye necklace to ward off bad karma. I always wear one to protect me.
When it comes down to competition, it's not always about the best skater, it's about who skates the best in that competition.
I've been competitive since day one. Even in little things as a child, like having a twin and a direct competitor for who makes better cookies.
Now that I have an Olympic medal in my room, it makes me hungry for another and a different color one.
Everyone has their dreams. I don't write my dreams down; they just live inside of me.
I think if I just do what I do every day, on the extraordinary Olympic stage, I could be a podium contender.
There is always the next big thing, the next big skater.
