🇬🇷 with the fam

What a year... so many great memories, experiences and moments. My first full year on the tour and I have learned so much. I feel so blessed to have such a strong fan base supporting me throughout the year. Couldn’t do it without you. I couldn’t imagine being in the position I am today at 19 years old. This being said, I am super motivated to get back to work this off season so I can keep climbing in 2019. I want to thank my team for their efforts in always keeping me in shape both physically and mentally, especially in the moments when I needed it the most. Top 30 in the world and I’m ready to work to go even further next year. Once again, I truly appreciate the love and support I’ve been getting from fans all around the world. You guys make me want to come back for many years to come ❤️. See you in 2019☺️ #DontStopFighting
