“I realized when I was 16 and a half or so that I had wasted so much time trying to please everyone else,” Ariel said. “I had to take that time to be happy…and I really did. It was the best decision I ever made. I stopped reading comments.”

“I don’t police what I post because I think it’s unnecessary,” Ariel continued. “I don’t care. I post what I like. I post what’s going to make me happy.”

She added, “You don’t respond to the harassers—you talk to everybody and you start a conversation.”

Missy Franklin Shares Inspiring Message After Failing To Medal at Rio Olympics

Missy Franklin Shares Inspiring Message After Failing To Medal at Rio Olympics

Missy Franklin shares a moment with Maya DiRado in the pool after swimming in the Women’s 200m Backstroke Semi Final during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium earlier this week in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 21-year-old swimmer walked away from the games without a medal this time around, even though she was part of the preliminary 4×200 relay squad which secured a lane for the finals squad to win gold.

“Unfortunately the time is no where near what I know I’m capable of doing. For some reason, it’s just not there right now,” Missy shared afterwards.

Maya added about Missy‘s character, “I just wanted her to know now how much the team loves her. It doesn’t matter that she didn’t make the final because she’s an amazing teammate. I can give her no higher compliment than, you would never know how she’s swimming based on how she’s interacting with the team. That’s the sign of a true champion and a true leader.”

Later on, Missy shared an inspiring message on Instagram. Read it below:

Missy Franklin Shines Spotlight on Her Parents in Minute Maid's Doin' Good Campaign

Missy Franklin pens a heartfelt letter to her parents in this new video, as part of the Minute Maid Doin’ Good campaign.

Minute Maid’s #doingood campaign reminds parents of all the wonderful things – big and small – they do to make a positive difference in their children’s lives every day. It is designed to battle the self-doubt many parents feel as they strive to balance careers, family, hectic schedules and mounting pressure from social media.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the love and support from my parents,” Missy shared. “They continue to make sacrifices to help me achieve my dream. It is a tremendous gift that I can only hope to repay one day. Minute Maid’s #doingood campaign is a remarkable opportunity for me to not only thank my own parents but recognize and honor all parents who truly have the most difficult job there is – raising great children.”

As part of the campaign, fans can enter the “Breakfast with Missy” promotion by sharing a positive message with a parent they know on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #doingoodcontest, or by visiting MinuteMaid.com/doingood for a chance to win a private breakfast event with Missy after the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games.
