Michelle Kwan, Olympic skating legend
What advice does Kwan, now a State Department senior adviser/public diplomacy envoy, offer? "I’d tell my 17-year-old self not to be afraid of having more than one dream. What you learn in sports — hard work, focus, dedication, falling and getting back up — you can apply to all of your dreams. The important thing is not to be afraid; give something new a try, and sometimes you’ll surprise yourself and land on your feet.''
