Olympic Inspiration: Gabrielle Douglas Tells Her Story

“…everything is possible and just to go out there and fight. If you have this dream, just go out there and don’t be scared. Always be courageous and strong, and don’t fear. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it.”

- Gabrielle Douglas in an interview with Essence Magazine

16-year-old Gabrielle Douglas showed the world how perseverance and dedication pays off when she won two gold medals in gymnastics, including the all-around gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics. She also made history as the first African American to win in her all-round event.

Even before her Olympic wins Gabby’s story was an inspiring example of not giving up on the dreams in your heart. Watch Gabby tell her story here:
