The 2012 Olympics has been over for quite some time, but Gabby Douglas is still flying high!
The 16-year-old Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast is all smiles on the cover of the December 2012 issue of Essence magazine.
Gabby looks amazing on the cover in a black party dress and gold belt, and so does her well-publicized hair.
In the issue, Gabby reveals:
“In my dreams I didn’t think about how many shows I would be on and how many people would tweet me…it’s so cool!”
Gabby is still considered America’s sweetheart and a shining example of being able to achieve anything if you put your mind to it. Check out Gabby’s cover above, but if you would like to read the full article, look out for the December issue of Essence on newsstands later this month.
