Michelle Kwan Answering My Question On U.S. Figure Skating's Google Hangout

Well, maybe I'm not fangirling that much, but I am still beyond thrilled to have had chance to have my interview question answered by 9 time U.S. Champion and 5 time World Champion Michelle Kwan in this U.S. Figure Skating Google Hangout! I've interviewed (and met) by fair share of famous figure skaters. Meeting Brian Orser and Jamie Sale was amazing... interviewing one of my skating idols Anita Hartshorn was a dream... but this made my day/week/year!
