Girls receive video message from Olympic champion Simone Biles
The girls received a lovely video message from Simone Biles, the highly acclaimed Olympic gymnast from the USA, who was one of the women we celebrated as part of Black History Month. During Black History Month, we focused on women who have achieved amazing things in diverse fields and ran a campaign throughout October to honour inspirational black women, past and present.
Simone once said: “Surround yourself with the dreamers, the doers, the believers, and the thinkers; but most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you even when you don’t see it in yourself.” We're sure that her words and her video message will inspire all of our girls!
