An Olympian was in the presence of Sacred Heart students this afternoon.

Laurie Hernandez, gold and silver medalist at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games for the U.S. gymnastics team and Mirror Ball Trophy Winner on Dancing With The Stars, flew into the Grand Forks International Airport this morning and made her way to East Grand Forks to shed some light on her life experiences.

The 17-year old has taken a few months off of gymnastics to travel the world and give motivational speeches to a variety of people.

This was her message today to the Eagles.
