"Performing at an elite level as a professional athlete is my job. Though, as athletes, part of our job is also to serve as ambassadors for our sport—to encourage people to test their limits and to understand the value of what we do. Athletes and celebrities have a civil responsibility to share their privileges with people who don’t have the opportunities they do. And today, it’s easier than ever. I feel a responsibility to integrate a level of social consciousness and awareness to causes that I believe in. Social media can be a catalyst for sharing ideas and shaping opinions. Taking a stand against climate change, gender gaps, and discrimination is not political; it’s logical and fair."
