Don't take no for an answer. Stay focused, perfect your craft, move with intention,

create opportunities for yourself and others, be of service, and above all else, have fun.

I have defined success on my own terms.

I hope other athletes, other women, see what I accomplish on and off the track and aspire to be the best version of themselves by going after what they want-no matter what anyone else thinks.” – Gabby Thomas, Professional Track and Field Athlete
