(KUTV) MyKayla Skinner juggles gymnastics, school, and her personal life all at the same time.

"It actually hasn't been too bad," she said of her schedule. "I thought it was going to be hard because in elite I was never at school. I only went to school half-days."

But now she has more time for school, homework, training, and hanging out with her teammates.

"We definitely have fun. We go to the movies, we go grab lunch or dinner--the girls are always wanting to do something fun," she said.

Skinner is studying communications and journalism at the University of Utah and hopes to get into that field after graduation.

"I want to do sports broadcasting and different things like that. That's what I'm really interested in, and doing NCAA stuff for college gymnastics," she said.
