“I was on my period the entire time and that made it extremely difficult and extra hard. What that meant was it took away from the time that I had to rest.
“I was trying to rack up cause I get 5 minutes everytime I completed 1 hour. So if I stand for one hour I had 5 minutes to rest. And I still had to do my medical checks. God bless my medical team. They were on ground.
“Because I was on my period I had to take a shower every single break I had. If I had 30 minutes I had to take a shower in that time because I had to change.
“My dad was worried because I have horrible cramps. Like really horrible cramps. So pushing through that means I can conquer things in this life.”
