#Empowered ~ Nicola Adams
Nicola Adams is our #Empowered woman of the week, as she projects the important message that ‘Women should be able to do any sport they choose’.
In 2012 she made history by being the first ever women to win a boxing gold medal in Olympic history!
Growing up, she was the only girl in her boxing classes, but this definitely didn’t stop her.
She was awarded Role Model of the Year by the Women's Sport Trust, talking about the impact successful sportswomen can have on the lives of others, and she stresses how important it is for women to be inspired by other women.
She says that her Mum taught her that femininity is strong, kind, caring, driven, ambitious and confident.
