Nina O’Brien, a Professional Alpine Skier for Team USA, opens up about the peaks and valleys she faced in her career and how she learned to build confidence in herself and her abilities. She takes us through how she went from being a young athlete living in California and having to drive several hours to ski on the weekends, to winning her first National Title at age 17 and eventually landing a spot on the World Cup circuit as part of Team USA. Nina highlights the importance of believing that your best is good enough on race day, and talks us through how she learned to perform for herself and let go of external pressure. She explains how building confidence is one of the most critical skills to hone as you transition from one level to the next. Nina reminds us that our dreams are not that far away, if we believe in ourselves and are willing to put in the work.

“When I put my mind to something I really am capable of making changes and there's no magic way to make that happen other than diligent work.” - Nina O’Brien
