1. I’m so happy to see the title of “Olympic Gold Medalist” in front of 17 year-old Flint native Claressa Shields. I had a great time shooting with Claressa a few months ago in her home gym for Seventeen Magazine. That issue is on newsstands now (tear sheet above).

    She was the only U.S. boxer (male or female) to win a gold medal in London!

    If you want to be inspired by a young person who has overcome tremendous odds and obstacles in her short life, just read this Washington Post article about Claressa and her victory.
