Laurie Hernandez will soon add published author to her impressive résumé. 

The 16-year-old gymnast, who conquered the 2016 Rio Olympics and was dubbed “Queen of the Ballroom” on “Dancing with the Stars,” is releasing a memoir. The book will follow her journey to becoming an Olympic gold medalist, People reports

The memoir, I Got This: To Gold and Beyond, is set to be released on Jan. 24. The title seems to allude to the viral moment when Hernandez whispered “I got this” to herself before her beam routine in Rio. 

“I hope I can help inspire people to go for their dreams,” Hernandez told People. “People have seen me at my best, but I don’t think most of them know everything that it took to get me to where I am today.”

Hernandez’s memoir will be published just months after fellow Final Five gymnast Simone Biles’ own autobiography Courage to Soar is set to hit the shelves on Nov. 15. 

The gymnast expressed her excitement over the news on Monday afternoon via Twitter.
