It was a great learning experience for me. It was one of those things where you know, if I’m being honest, I wanted more. I didn’t feel like I had the best reign. I feel like there was a lot of meat left on the bone, a lot more that we could have done there so yeah, for me, I was really fortunate and really blessed to have that opportunity and really grateful for it as well. I felt like I was proud of myself in that, the demands with that title are real.
