Winning at the Olympics - it's a special feeling. You realize you're not playing just for yourself, you're playing for your country, and you become really proud to be where you're from. I just never thought that I would be able to go so far in my career, but I never stopped. I always worked hard. I just never gave up. Growing up in Compton, California you just want to be able to say that I can do better or I can do this or I can get out and I can be a role model for everyone else. If I was talking to the kids in Compton, I would tell them that no one can define you. No one can put a label on you. No one can say this is what you're supposed to do. And when you think of all the Olympic athletes, they are really doing something that is beyond everything they should have done. I mean, having a chance to win a gold medal and compete against the best of the best across the globe.
I'm super proud to be a part of the defy labels campaign because who puts labels on anything? Who's to say what you can do and what you can't? Who makes the rules? No, I believe you make your own world, and you can defy anything that anyone says.
