One example of Karen Chen’s skating excellence is that even by the seventh grade, she was being homeschooled, in order for her to dedicate more of her time to figure skating. When she went to public school, Karen would have to wake up at four in the morning, go to the skating rink, rush back and then travel to school in a few hours. In an interview, Chen was recorded as saying that her biggest competition was herself.

I especially enjoyed witnessing all the hardworking girls ,just like myself, strive for their dream. Every little gymnasts’ dream, including mine, was to go to the Olympics, to compete at the college level and achieve overall greatness in the sport of gymnastics. However, as I got older and progressed through the sport, that dream that every little girl dreams about started to slowly slip away. The reality was that by the time I had reached 8th grade I was no longer at my pinnacle. I had hit the dreaded growth spurt.

For ten years, my mom always platted, or two-strand twisted my hair and matched my barrettes to whatever color she wanted me to wear to school that day.
