If you were wondering where Caitlyn Jenner got the confidence to deliver her flawless speech after receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs, you should probably read her latest blog post.
“How I Conquered My Biggest Fear At the ESPYs” is a pretty self-explanatory walkthrough of everything from getting her dress made up, to receiving the award itself, to watching the speech on TV at home after partying with her family.
Diane Sawyer was in attendance that night, which was special for Jenner as Sawyer's interview with her acted as the former Olympian's "coming out party" as Caitlyn.
Jenner spoke of Sawyer in the post. She wrote,
Abby Wambach, the US women's national soccer team player who married her girlfriend in 2013, had the fitting honor of introducing Caitlyn at the ESPYs.
Jenner said the moment she was getting up on stage was nerve-racking, but it was one of the highlights of the night. She continued,

She also made sure to restate her mission on helping people with gender identity issues, writing,
Everyone should just start accepting Caitlyn Jenner as his or her personal lord and savior.
