Olympic medallist

“Don’t ever sell yourself short,” Olympic silver medallist Ashley Brzozowicz told a group of World Issues and Fitness students during an appearance in Norwood sponsored by RBC.

Brzozowicz, a Yale University art history grad and member of the women’s silver medal winning rowing eight in London, used her story of Olympic and world championship success, after inglorious tries at swimming and track, to remind students that perseverance and a “following [a] passion” are fundamentally important in anything they choose to do.
