Ware told her followers she was “proud” of herself at the end and the mistake happened to her at the “wrong time.”
“I am very proud of myself. Something really difficult. What you see in the competition is just a tiny factor of what we actually do to get to where we are. I was so ready for this competition and I made a mistake. It could have happened to anybody but it happened to me at the wrong time,” Ware said in an Instagram video di domenica. “But I am proud because I have done everything possible to make it to where I am. And I’m human. I’m allowed to make mistakes.”
She said this moment wasn’t going to have an everlasting effect on her or her career.
“I hope you guys are gonna get used to having me around because I’m not going anywhere. I’m not giving up. This competition doesn’t define me and I’m not letting it defeat me. I’ll be around for another three years,” lei ha aggiunto.
