Gabby Douglas has acheived more by the age of 20 than most of us will achieve in our entire lives. Her latest accomplishment: getting a Barbie doll made in her image!
Just after the conclusion of her own TV series Douglas Family Gold, the official Gabby Douglas Barbie was released by Mattel just this week. Part of the company's "Shero" line, the one-of-a-kind Douglas likeness celebrates the prized athlete's accomplishments.
"I'm so excited," Douglas said to People. "My older sister and I used to play with Barbies and create these dramatic fantasy stories, so it's such a huge honor."
"Be yourself and really embrace your inner beauty and your true talent," she cotinued. "Believe in yourself. Never let anyone tell you you can't do something when you can."
