Terrific Teen Tuesday – Gabby Douglas

I wasn’t going to go Olympic for this week’s Terrific Teen. Goodness knows there are enough terrific teens competing in London right now and they all deserve accolades. But I’m not really that into sports so I was going to avoid jumping on the band wagon.

But who could resist 16-year-old Gabby Douglas? She shares my first name, for starters (we Gabrielles like to stick together) and dang it all, she’s just a cute as a button; she lit up the Olympic venue with her smile. She’s a trailblazer for African American gymnasts and for women of color too, which always gets my vote.

On ya, Gabby. You deserve your gold. You’re terrific.
