I got published in 'People'!
I traveled to Beijing, China alone as the first alternate for the 2022 Olympics. It was the hardest experience I've ever been faced with in my life. I was completely isolated in a hotel room by myself for seven days in a foreign country. On day 1 I got food poisoning, and on day 7 I watched my teammates and fellow competitors compete in the Olympics on my computer in bed. So naturally, I turned to writing to cope. Below is a piece that I'm very proud of and wrote while in China, and I'm honored it was published in People. Enjoy!
