Four foot eight, just nineteen years old, from Columbus, Ohio, and she’s taking the world by storm. Simone Biles is a world champion, and it shows in her skillful and seemingly effortless work. She flips and bends and moves and performs as though she’s weightless, and she acts in the same apparent manner. Biles is not only confident and bubbly in her work, but she has the same personality and passion in the way that she acts and speaks. She is intelligent, humble, bubbly, confident, passionate, bold, kind, extremely hard working, and most importantly, determined and persistent.She knows what she wants, and she gets it, and I love that about her. What makes her such a spectacular gymnast is the fact that she loves what she’s doing. If you love what you’re doing and you’re happy, it will shine right through you and whatever you’re doing will appear beautiful and graceful. Happiness and confidence is more than enough beauty and it shines right through you when you’re doing something that makes you happy. And, that is exactly what happens when Biles’ feet hit the mat or as her hands grip the bars or beam. She isn’t a world champion because of her years and hours of intense training and practice, but because of her pure love and passion for the art of gymnastics.Biles’ success is enormous. Along with her five Olympic medals, another success of hers is the fact that she is the first gymnast since 1974 to win four consecutive all-around titles at the U.S National championships. Her five 2016 Olympic medals also allowed her to tie for the most ever by a U.S. gymnast.In this past summer’s gymnastics, Biles came out with five well-deserved and sparkling medals. Gold in floor exercise, bronze in the beam, gold in the vault, gold in the individual all around, and gold in the team all around. She is not a one time all around world champion, but a THREE time world all-around champion. Isn’t that crazy? She’s accomplished more than an average person would in a lifetime and she’s not even twenty, and that is because she is anything but average. She’s extraordinary, and she’s such a great idol and role model for girls all around the world with dreams big as hers.I bet as a child she never thought to herself, “One day I’m going to be a world champion gold medal gymnast.” As a child, she and her family never would have thought that she would have competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics, but she sure did, and that sets a great example for not only girls with big dreams, but anyone who wishes to accomplish something that will make them happy.If you want to do something, go for it. Don’t let anything stop you. Biles sure never did, and look where that got her. Don’t care what other people say because they’re not in charge of your happiness and they’re not the ones living your life. You are. Her hard work and persistence led her to being the United States most decorated gymnast ever with 19 World/Olympic medals under her belt. I bet people along the way told her that she wouldn’t be able to ever compete in world championships or Olympics, but she looked past that and did it.Because of Biles’ enormous success during this year’s Olympics, she’s going to be taking a break from competitive gymnastics to focus on herself, her goals, and deciding how she wants to proceed with her success and talent. During her off year, one project that she will be focusing on will be her own autobiography telling the story of her and how she got where she is today. The autobiography that she will spend time working on is set to be up for sale this November 15th, and I and others cannot wait to read it.
