Olympian Marlen Esparza on Missing Out & Retiring from Boxing

I received news a couple of weeks ago, regarding Marlen Esparza and the MAKERS initiative.

The MAKERS: Women Who Make America is a landmark digital video and broadcast initiative from AOL and PBS that chronicles the stories of exceptional women whose pioneering contributions shape our world.

Esparza, the first woman to qualify for the U.S. Olympic boxing team, is now featured on the site. In her interviews she talks about her love for the sport, fighting as a reminder, and how tough it is to be everything, among other conversations.
