Thank you, everyone, for coming. I’m turning 28 today and it’s funny because many years ago, when I was 16 I was living in Korea and that was when the 2002 World Cup was taking place in Korea. I remember thinking how when I turned 20 and the World Cup was in Germany that would be a great time to go to the World Cup because I’d be so young and then the next time in 2010, I would be 24 and that would be great too.
I completely ruled out the Brazil World Cup in 2014 because, of course, I couldn’t attend the World Cup by then. I would be 28 and have children and be far too OLD to attend a World cup.
What I’m trying to say is that even though life didn’t turn out the way that I thought it would, I find that I am so happy to be where I am today.
And honestly, I look way better during this World Cup than I did during any of the previous ones!
It has been a good and also hard past year and I can truly say in this past year I have learned which friends make me feel alive and I am so blessed to have all of you.
Thank you for everything!
