Have you ever been so inspired by a teenager? I admired Gabby Douglas for making history in the 2012 Olympics; however, I didn’t know her story. I had read about some of her challenges, but watching the details of her life story was overwhelming! I was amazed at her vision, her determination, and her exceptional talent!
While some adults are afraid to leave their homes, churches, jobs, etc., Gabby Douglas left home at 14. Her bravery really touched me, and I am committed to overcoming some of my fears. Finally, I was impressed that she gave God the glory after her victory. Read more about her faith. I challenge you to be like Gabby Douglas: Never quit!
Having a vision can sometimes become a challenge! I can see where I am going, but I can’t find my way there! Those frustrations have resulted in some people allowing their dreams to become nightmares. Despite all of the obstacles, I am determined to see my dream become a reality! I keep on believing regardless of anything, and I am motivated by people like Mrs. Janet Bragg.
Janet Bragg became a registered nurse, an aviator, and an entrepreneur despite poor opportunities for African Americans. She purchased her own airplane when her flight school did not have any airplanes, and she would later purchase two additional airplanes. She saw the value in ownership over being a renter. As a visionary, Mrs. Bragg accomplished that and more during difficult times. So, I am encouraged to keep on believing in my dream!
