Olivia Dunne wears many hats — she's a talented gymnast, a social media sensation, a devoted mom to her fur baby Roux, and a helpful guide for her fellow athletes.

While her dazzling gymnastic routines and online stardom bring in the cash, there's a hidden truth behind the glitz and glamour.

Being a gymnast isn't all smooth landings and perfect tens. In reality, it's more like walking on a tightrope where one misstep can lead to point deductions.

Even for the highest-paid female NCAA athlete, who seems like the picture of perfection, being a student-athlete comes with its own set of challenges.
