“ I want to inspire future generations of black and brown people to continue to get outside. I’m taking up space doing all the sports outside that we grew up saying ‘black people don’t do this and that.' I’m changing the narrative. Showing them we do do that, we have done that and we’re gonna keep doing that. ”-Alexis
