“Don’t let anybody tell you something’s just for guys,” says Queen Underwood, a boxing champion. A fighter all her life, Queen started as a victim of rape and domestic abuse. Now, after overcoming her emotional struggles, she is hoping to compete in the 2012 Olympics. She may be the first female boxer to receive a gold metal in the Olympics.
Queen’s message to women is to follow their passion. “No matter what you’re involved in,” Queen urges, “just go for it.”
