25 Things About Gabby Douglas

I am so proud of Gabby Douglas! She is such an adorable and hard working teenager and it’s such an honor to see her become the first African American gymnast to win an Olympic gold medal and receive an endorsement deal with Kellogg’s! She is the face of what perseverance and success looks like.
