Transcript of How is Gabrielle Douglas a Leader?

By: Callie Spaulding How Is Gabrielle Douglas
A Leader? How Douglas Shows Her Ability to Promote A Goal How Douglas Makes Others Feel Important Background Of Childhood Gabby and her family started off on the very bottom. At times, she was told that her dream of becoming an Olympic Gymnast was impossible, but she pushed through all of the hard times, and didn't let anything stop her from making her dream come true.
"Too small.", "Too delicate.", "No chance."
People would say negative things like this to Gabby all of the time. Takes the time to write a novel of her own like: Grace, Gold, and Glory: My Leap of Faith to hopefully inspire others by her story
Douglas also dedicates some of her time to give inspirational advice, like: "The hard work definitely paid off and hard work always does." and "You just have to be yourself and go full with confidence and be courageous."
So basically, she shows people that everything will work out in the end. Gabrielle Douglas's family was poor during her childhood. They were so broke at a point of her childhood that Gabrielle, along with her parents, and two sisters lived in their Dodge Van.
Gabrielle Douglas also experience a rare blood disease only at a few months old which was life threatening. Following Rules and Treating Others Well All though Gabby admits that girls in her classes would pick on her, she says she would ignore them.
Even though Gabby would be challenged a lot by her trainer in Iowa, she knew that what he was making her do, would only make her better. How Brie Douglas Accepts Her Own Mistakes Moves forward with anticipation
Realizes her mistake, and what she can do in the future to not make the same mistake again.
Doesn't deny that she messed up, and admits her mistake NOT Criticizing Others In Public If you Google Search, "Gabrielle Douglas Criticizing Others", there aren't any results on anything about her doing that.
The only thing that will come up is others criticizing Brie. (Example: Hair, routine
This goes to show that Gabrielle does a great job keeping her "Criticizing Record" clean. Following A Plan Of Action Gabrielle, ever since a young age, dreamed of being an Olympic Gymnast. She would look up to role models like Dominique Dawes, another Olympic Gymnast. She had to over come so many obstacles (disbelievers), (pushing herself), to make her dream come true, but she did it. When you want something so badly, like Gabrielle did, you won't let anything stop you from achieving that goal. What I Admire About Brie Douglas Brie Douglas isn't a quitter. She fights for what she believes in, and keeps pushing even when things get hard. She is a role model to everyone who use to let obstacles get in the way of achieving their goals in life. Facts She is currently 17 years old
She grew up and was born in Virginia Beach, Virginia
She currently spends a lot of her time in Iowa working with her trainer (She lives with him and his family)
