2012 BlackNEK Favorite Moments- Gabrielle Douglas

Gabrielle Douglas became the first African-American to win the Best All Around Olympic gymnastic medal this past summer. She was grace and energy and intelligence and hardwork, packed into a little dynamo. And after her winning performance, the immediate response from within were comments about how she was doing her hair.  Gabby had nothing to worry about because she knew there are many women with great $100 hair styles who have not come near her accomplishments in life.  Her family sacrificed so she could get the training and skills needed to reach the mountain top. While I personally wouldn’t recommend such a financial gamble towards areas of sports and arts with few guarantees of long term financial success, I am glad it worked out for them. Congrats, Gabby, on a fantastic year.
