It's super cool - I have this link to Korea, and with the Olympics, I have this opportunity to represent the U.S., Korea, and my family.

I think the cool thing about snowboarding is that everyone has their own style.

Zendaya - she's a boss - and Rihanna as well. I feel like those are two very powerful women.

I knock on my board to unjinx myself.

I'm so happy to have all this support from everyone around the world, and I'm forever thankful for all of them.

Four is actually my lucky number.

Honestly, I didn't like snowboarding when I was a little girl. As I got older, it became something I did with my dad. When I was 10, I knew I was good for my age, but I never felt that I was prodigy-level or anything like that.

I always try to see it in positive way, like, you know what, the people that are expecting so much about of me know I can do it and believe in me. So I just kind of think about it like that. And it makes me feel a little better.

It's not like I was just dropped onto a snowboard and I was able to go 15 feet into the air. There was a lot of hard work that came with it. That's something that people don't really notice sometimes and the amount of sacrifice my family made.

I think the goal is always to be both. I put more effort into the technical side of my riding, but style is very important nowadays.

I'm so used to America, used to the traffic in L.A., and I don't really feel it click with the Korean culture. But obviously, I have a Korean face, and I feel like that's just - you know, I can't walk around people like I'm, like, straight-up American. It's like, I'm Korean American. My parents are from Korea.

I'm, like, finishing up high school. I don't know how you can learn anything from me because I'm still, like, a teenager. I don't know what I'm doing with my life.

I feel like I can represent both countries, in a way, because I have a Korea face, but I was born and raised in the States.

If you give me fro-yo without mangoes, you're dead to me. If you say that Hawaiian pizza is gross, we're done.

For whatever reason, I'm pretty good with pressure. I kinda just flip it over and think of it as positive.

I want to go to college.

I don't think I made many sacrifices myself, but my parents have.

To me, snowboarding is really an art form, and I think every athlete, every snowboarder has her own style, and that makes them stand out.

I was really excited to land my first 1080. But I was surprised that it came a lot easier than I thought it would.

I feel like dreams are always a little tricky, you know? But if you just push through the struggles and the hard times, it'll be so worth it in the end because you will be able to get to your dreams.

The Olympics are just different. I'm not sure why; the pipe's the same size, the board you're riding is the same, you're competing against pretty much the same people. But the Olympics is the Olympics, and I know it's a really big deal.

I don't feel that much fear.

I was, like, talking to these kids, and I look up, and there was, like, 25 cameras around me. And I ran. I ran away. I, like, straight up ran away, and I was so scared, and then, like, it happened, and after I was done, it kinda sunk in.

I just go into a contest looking to put down a good run. As long as I feel like I've done what I came to do, and I'm happy with my riding, where I end up doesn't matter that much to me.

Being in a class with kids, meeting new people, and borrowing notes from other students - I've never done that before. I've always had to fend for myself.

I think, you know, if you're young - even if you're old, it doesn't matter how old you are - but if you find something that you really want to try, just give it a try.

I don't snowboard to win everything. I do it because I love it. I do it because I have fun, and everyone else can think whatever they want. For me, it's all about fun, and I enjoy it so much.

Just because I'm young doesn't mean I didn't work hard to get to where I am.

I've flown from Aspen and then to Switzerland the next day and then off again the day after. That's the thing I love most about snowboarding, honestly - getting to travel and explore different places and meet people.

Before I drop in, I tend to knock on my snowboard. You know how when you jinx yourself, they're like, 'Knock on wood.' My snowboard's wood, so in case I jinxed myself sometime in the past, I just knock on my board. It just makes me feel a lot more comfortable.

I didn't get a normal school life, and my sisters have told me so many fun stories about college, so I'm just so excited.

I don't remember the exact moment I fell in love with snowboarding; it wasn't something cheesy like, 'Oh the wind was blowing through my hair and I just knew this sport was for me... ' I was good at it, and it's exhilarating!

I had to grow up a little fast.

I don't like doing the same runs. I like to mix it up a lot.

I hate it when I get grumpy. But I can only be high-energy for so long.

I feel like I have this unique opportunity to represent both Korea and the U.S.

I don't get butterflies. I get a good feeling in my stomach before I compete. When I don't, I get worried.

I knew if I went home with the gold medal knowing that I could do better, I wasn't going to be very satisfied.

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' is interesting, intriguing.

It would be meaningful if I can get a gold medal in my parents' country.

I think my riding has hopefully gotten a lot better, but I'm always trying to push myself.

I'm much more of a city girl. I like the mall. I like shopping.

My father didn't want to ski alone, so he took me up to the mountains in order to basically bribe my mom to come with him.

If I had a message to give my dad, it'd probably be, 'Thank you, thank you, thank you.' He's helped me so much on this crazy journey. Giving up his job, being away from my mom, and being away from home for that much just because of me? It's a lot. And I thank him for it.

My mom wouldn't let me dye my hair for the longest time.

I had some social anxiety when I was younger because I wasn't surrounded by many people in my life.

If my hands get cold, I'll go inside to warm them up and basically never come back out. I'm a little wimp.

I definitely have a lot of Korean-American fans, which is amazing.

When I was younger, me and my dad worked really hard. We did it the hard way.
