Simone Biles wants foster kids to know that they can do anything they set their minds to!
The 19-year-old Olympic gold medalist, who was in foster care before being adopted by her grandparents, hopes she can inspire other kids in the same situation.
“I know firsthand what it’s like to be in foster care — struggles and all…I came from a foster home and went on to achieve everything I’ve achieved,” she told People.
Simone added, “I’m just hoping it can inspire other foster kids to never give up and to always pursue your dreams. And to play sports and get good sleep! My message is: There are no limits.”
She also announced that she’s partnering up Mattress Firm Foster Kids, which donates items like clothes and school supplies to foster children and their families.
We love that Simone is helping out such an important cause!
