- Alessandra Ambrosio

- Angela Lindvall

Perseverance About

Personally, I've learned about perseverance: when you hear the word 'No,' and when you hear rejection, that it's not always final. And that timing is everything, and you have to stay the course and just keep working hard and know that, when your time comes, that it will be sweet and that it will be the perfect time.

- Angela Robinson

Sports Lives

I'm in the perfect position. It's a sports position and a political position where I can help better the lives of athletes around the world.
