Summary
"In her new memoir Brave Enough, 2018 Olympic Gold Medalist Jessie Diggins shares her story for the first time. The core of Brave Enough traces her amazing journey from the heartland of the United States into the history books of sports. The memoir details her childhood in Afton, Minnesota (an idyllic small town nestled in a virtual snow globe), her meteoric rise as an elite youth athlete (she turned pro straight out of high school), and her dazzling athletic achievements on the world stage (she is a four time World Championship medalist and one of the most decorated women's winter athletes of all time). She also addresses important, personal issues like the importance of girls participation in sports. Diggins is also one of the most outspoken athletes that is stepping up to bring awareness to global climate change. Diggins also shares at length, for the first time, about her personal struggle with a serious eating disorder that nearly killed her"--
