One of the first feelings I ever remember having is fear. This will surprise people who know me. I am an outgoing, friendly and generally a bold person. People see that and think everything is easy for me. I was afraid of going to my first gymnastics lesson. That’s the first time I remember being afraid, when I was six. I spent the next eight years afraid in the gym, particularly of beam for some reason, but generally afraid of many things. I eventually gave up that sport and moved to the even scarier sport of diving.
