What does "beauty" mean to you?
My mom always told me that beauty fades—outside beauty fades—but inner beauty is forever. So I think that it's really important that we focus on the other things that make us beautiful.

And what are those other things that make us beautiful?
[For example,] the way we communicate with other people. Focus on the things that make us happy and feel good about ourselves so we can inspire other people.

When do you feel the most beautiful?
When I am rested and happy and laughing and with my family and friends.

So, with all your success, you must have felt beautiful all year long!
But I haven't rested all year! (laughs)

No, I think I feel the most beautiful when I'm on vacation because I'm relaxed and free and comfortable and I'm not working and I don't have to be glamorous or what people traditionally think of as beautiful.

I feel the most beautiful when I can just be myself.
