Gina Meyer, DPT

Connect and Rise with Hafsa Kamara, 2016 Rio Olympian, Founder of the BrandMe Program, and youth advocate.  Hafsa shares her personal journey of becoming an Olympian representing Sierra Leone even when the odds were stacked against her (including her own father's belief that Muslim women did not belong in Track and Field).  She reminds us that anything is possible with hard work and determination, even when you think a dream is so big it may never be realized.  Hafsa also talks about her current goals which include empowering youth as we continue to demand social justice.  She encourages each of us to do what we can because "now is the time for your voice to be heard; now is the time for your actions to matter."
