“I don’t think I’m ready — I gotta be ready. It’s coming. So I’m ready for it. Whatever happens happens, I’m just having fun with it. Any mistakes that I make is an investment in my future. I’m really young and I’ve got a long time, so I’m ready for it.”

“I feel like I have some shoes to fill. [Ronda’s] definitely up there and it’s going to take me some time just to develop it. It’s coming a lot faster than I was expecting.”
