Our trailblazer for today in honor of #WomensHistoryMonth is
award-winning news anchor Robin Roberts!
Robin became ESPN’s
first on-air black anchorwoman, which led her to an anchor spot on Good Morning
America where she was recognized for her extensive reporting on Hurricane
Katrina. Robin beat cancer twice, and used her platform as a way to drastically
increase the number of bone marrow donors in the U.S. She’s received numerous
awards for her work in journalism, sports and philanthropy – a 2012 Peabody and
the Arthur Ashe Courage award to name a few. After officially coming out in
2013, Robin continues to be a symbol of courage for all women!
