Olympic Gold medalist Laurie Hernandez.
On Sunday, Old bridge native Laurie Hernandez headed north to sign copies of her newly released book, I Got This: To Gold and Beyond, at Bookends in Ridgewood. What better place to kick off her upcoming book tour than in her home state?
While the gold medalist and Dancing with the Stars winner’s muscles are quite intimidating in person, we promise she lives up to her gentle yet bubbly persona. With a smile that lit up the room, Hernandez excitedly greeted her fans for the duration of the event. Seriously, could she be any more adorable?
