Love what you do

About very talented and very determined young boxer and her father:

My favorite lines:

Jesselyn Silva:

“I want to help him, and I want to help myself get better.”

and

“I never ever ever ever ever — maybe like a hundred evers — think that anything is too difficult for me.”

Her father:

“Regardless of how it turns out in the future, you’ve got to do something that you love to do. And you master it.

 

But I also really get his occasional apprehensive looks when she’s talking.

Silva mentions Claressa Shields towards the end of the video, when she’s talking about her long-term goals. Here’s an article from NPR about Shields, with audio and a transcript: “After Second Gold, Boxer Claressa Shields Looks Ahead To What’s Next” (from August 2016)
