I tried to concentrate, to be strong and it is very difficult when you’re young. Because many people think: “She’s still quite young, in the future it will be a good jumper.” But in my head I was older.

This medal was important for my country. Now in Ukraine is not luchshiy times, so I hope that my medal has inspired someone or got distracted on the positive emotions.
