Sunisa Lee took second at the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Championship.

Sunisa, 16, has found trying to balance training for the Olympics and going to school to be an obstacle she has to deal with. She starts her day at 6:30AM, attends school and then straight to practice until 8 p.m. Everyday. Lee understands what the cost of her dreams are and what it will take for her to achieve them.

Lee is the first Hmong-American Gymnast to compete at her level and is now in the running to make the National World Championship team and has a chance at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
