Noise cancellation up! It's prep time. Thanks to Bose for always tuning out the noise and helping me get into the zone. Taylor Swift, Nick Jonas and Coldplay are currently on my getting-ready playlist.

It's not easy finding the perfect look for a strong, athletic body type. My stylist Jasmine Caccamo found the most beautiful dress from Rani Zakhem paired with Mia Becar shoes.

It takes a village! Thanks to Clarissa Luna (makeup), Ryan Austin (hair), and Jasmine Caccamo (stylist) for making me feel like a star so I could feel good on stage presenting the Best Female College Athlete award to Paige Bueckers (amazing speech!).

Can't forget my favorite accessory — my Longines watch. (That reminds me, it's time to go!)
