  1. Ruby! I’m still trying to get over your monologue! Well done! I’m so happy you chose Mary Cain. She has so much to share and learn from. Well done!

  2. Thanks for sharing your story and struggle with us. You are a great role-model. What helped you become the person you are today? In other words, how were you able to overcome these abusive and challenging circumstances? I am impressed with your resilience and drive to make a difference.

    1. Thanks for your question! I believe that what I experienced while training at Nike has helped me become who I am today. Although it was very challenging to deal with it made me stronger, and taught me to stand up for myself and other female athletes who are going through similar situations. As for overcoming the challenges that I faced, I really struggled, and at times I wasn’t sure if I was going to even survive, but in the end my parents helped a lot. They were the ones who convinced me to quit training at Nike.

  3. Amazing eminent pick! I haven’t heard of Mary Cain, but thanks to your presentation I have a better grip on her story. Great research, creative prezi, and excellent work!

  4. I loved your prezi presentation and kahoot! Mary, your story is so inspiring and I agree that it is important to bring awareness to issues such as eating disorders. My question to you is this: if you knew more about the downsides of the running industry, would you still have pursued this career?

    1. Thanks for your great question! I believe that even if I had known the downsides of working in the running industry, I still would have eventually pursued a career in track and field, because I’m so passionate about it. However, I probably would’ve chosen to compete for a college or university before going pro, as I would have been able to gain more experience.
