In her new memoir titled “Grace, Gold and Glory,” she opened up about a conversation she had with her mother about her future as a teenager. She considered quitting gymnastics and going to get a job at Chik-Fil-A so she could live a “normal life”.
Her text message said:
“Gymnastics is not my passion anymore.“I can get a job at Chick-Fil-A in Virginia Beach and live off the 14-grand I just won at World Championships.”
“I just want to be a normal teenage kid.”
According to the memoir, Gabby’s older brother convinced her to stick with it and we’re glad he did!
