“When I was growing up in Puerto Rico, there was no female athlete I could look at and say, ‘I want to be like her. That drove me harder to succeed and become that role model for the girls coming up behind me.”
– Beatriz “Gigi” Fernández, Puerto Rican tennis player. Olympic Gold Medal winner. Member of International Tennis Hall of Fame.
