Simone Biles is keeping herself busy encouraging the next generation of female athletes to feel fierce on and off the field. The Olympic Gold Medalist has been traveling, promoting partnerships and speaking to young women about gender equality in sports.
“A big focus for me right now is inspiring the next generation of female athletes to dominate in sports like just men, which we honestly proved at the Olympics when women overall picked up more medals than men,” Biles, told PEOPLE. “Because once you are in the spotlight you need to use that momentum.”
Simone who won an Espy on Wednesday night for Best Female Athlete, says she just wants women to never give up and chase their dreams.
There’s so much focus on men in sports, so we just want women to know to never give up and chase their dreams,” she says. “We’re always doing that, we’re always on.”
