As a 20 year-old, going over to the Soviet Union, participating in the Olympic Development Program for the United States and bringing that experience back, and understanding that if I can go through that type of doorway athletically, what about academically, emotionally, spiritually? Why limit yourself? If I’m going to be a whole person, let me be total, and become the complete package, and not have certain areas of my life go forward. Be a one on a scale of one to ten, with one being the highest, and let other areas be with the other numbers. Those are things that began to happen in my teenage years, and I guess it created a perspective.
