The week of May 26, I'll be podcast interviewing Olympic Gold Medalist Dominique Dawes on behalf of BlogHer!
Dominique, 31, was the first African-American woman to win an individual medal in gymnastics, having won bronze in the floor exercise at the ’96 Games, the second of her third Olympics. She was recently named – along with her teammates on the “Magnificent Seven” from 1996 – to the United States Olympic Committee’s Hall of Fame and will be inducted in June.
Dominique is dedicated to empowering girls to develop positive self-esteem. She teamed up with Girl Scouts of the USA to launch uniquely ME!, the organization's global self-esteem program and has partnered with the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty to speak to young girls around the country. As a speaker, Dominique shares her unique experiences as a top athlete, role model, and a positive television personality to inspire and empower girls to feel good about themselves and fulfill their dreams.
She is definately one of my REAL role models and I'm excited to interview her about her passions!
What would you like me to ask her? I'd love to get your questions by Saturday, May 24.
