What does wearing the Team USA uniform mean to you?: To wear the team USA uniform means more than life itself to me. I’ve been dreaming and talking about becoming a member of the USA team practically my whole life. Now finally being able to wear a jersey representing my country is more than I could have ever imagined. It’s a feeling you can’t describe or know until you put the jersey on for yourself and able to call yourself a member of the USA team. It’s a feeling that I never want to forget and I’m thrilled to be a part of something so great.
