– Nia, how are you going to celebrate your birthday? – I’m going to have a party in Pauley Pavilion with all my bestest sisters. Full of love, I’m so happy! Oh my gosh, I’m so grateful, so thankful, so happy. My heart is so full. Today I got to be with all my sisters. I’m just chilling here because I need to calm down, number one. I’ve been dancing for like, two hours straight because it’s my birthday and I have a lot of energy and adrenaline. And two, because we just finished vault warmup and I’m not doing bars, but I’m gonna go back out there and cheer my team on but I’m just taking a little break so I could re… charge. 1, 2, 3, NIA NATION! Practice was really good this week. The team as a whole really evolved and focused on details and we got even closer, our bubble got even tighter. We’ve been incredibly vulnerable this year, and we’ve been able to come out to each other, open up to each other, and really have that foundation of trust. Like, the most trust I feel like we’ve ever had. – Do you want me in a corner? – Look at all these people that came to your party! – Are you kidding? Thousands! – K. – Breathe, k? Have fun, show it off. I’ll be in your corner. – Love you. You got this. – Enjoy the party, have fun. And that just allows us to be free, and that’s when we do our best anyways, we just go have fun, and fly. HAP! PY! BIRTH! DAY! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! – TENNNN!!!!! – TEN! TEN! TEN! – That was so good! – HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR NIA HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
