It’s hard to believe that Aly Raisman is just 24 years old.
She’s so brave, well-spoken, and did we mention she’s a SIX-time Olympic medal winner? (Three of those were golds, by the way!) And recently, Aly has become an inspiring, outspoken advocate for survivors of sexual abuse, since opening up publicly about her own abuse in 2017.
When Rach asked her what’s going through her mind at the moment — especially as the #MeToo movement continues to take center stage in our current culture — Aly kept it simple.
"I think the most important thing for me and for hopefully everyone else," she tells Rach, "is taking it day by day."
“It’s easy to focus on the negative," she continues, "[because] it is so scary and frustrating to think of how many people are in pain and how many abusers get away with horrible crimes. But I think it’s important to take a step back and focus on how far we have come as a culture.”
With so much negativity swirling on social media, Aly says that in the last year, she’s learned that the best way to educate herself is to hear other people’s stories. Engaging with other people’s opinions and experiences, she explains, and understanding where another person is coming from, has really helped her to navigate the negativity.
We're so inspired by this young woman.
