Why you should listen

Allyson Felix is an eleven-time Olympic medalist and five-time Olympic champion, but most recently she has found her passions off the track. She’s the co-founder and president of Saysh, a community-centered lifestyle brand for and by women, as well as an investor and advisor to other startups. She’s also an advocate of maternal health; in 2021, she spoke with Vice President Kamala Harris at the White House as part of the Maternal Health Day of Action.

But ask Felix what she's most proud of, and she won't hesitate. Her greatest love is her daughter, Camryn, who inspires her mission to create a future in which inequality is undermined by female creativity and athleticism.
