Simone Biles on Confidence

I think it’s important to teach our female youth that, that it’s OK to say, `Yes, I am good at this,’ and you don’t hold back. You only see the men doing it. And they’re praised for it and the women are looked down upon for it. But I feel like it’s good because once you realize you’re confident and good at it, then you’re even better at what you do.

I feel like we should teach the youth that it’s OK to say, ‘Yes, I am good.’ And it’s not out of cockiness. It is what it is, at the end of the day. I’ve won five world titles and if I say, `I’m the best gymnast there is,’ (the reaction is), ‘Oh, she’s cocky, look at her now.’ No, the facts are literally on the paper. I think it’s important to teach the youth that.
