Gabby Douglas has made history at the Olympics, winning the most desired title in all the women’s gymnastics– the gold metal in the women’s individual all-around competition! She’s the third straight U.S. gymnast to attain this award, as well as the first African-American to do so!
I think she has such an amazing and courageous story. Leaving her family, friends, life as she knows it, at 14-years-old to fulfill her dream! To have that mindset at such an early age speaks abundantly about the person she is and how sacrificing can be rewarding!
I, like many Americans are so proud her! She has inspired me to stop ask myself, “what’s stopping you?” She’s a prime example of dreams coming true!
