When I managed to win the first one a year ago, I decided to try to improve that year to put it at the service of the team and to see it rewarded in this way makes me proud. Without a doubt, without my teammates this would not It would be possible, I wouldn’t be here. I appreciate you very much and it’s a privilege to be your partner,” said Alexia upon receiving the award.
