Carli Lloyd, soccer player. Carli is a two-time Olympic gold medalist, FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion, and was the FIFA Player of the Year in 2015 and 2016. 

"I want to intimidate people when I'm on the field. I want people to be scared of me. That's just ... who I am as a person and player. But I also know that you have to be emotional. You have to be in touch with your feelings — I think that's important. But I think being a competitive person by nature, as a female, is something empowering and that's kind of how I've been my entire life."

"I am who I am. I'm not having to go outside and switch the role model hat on. It's me. It's important for me to leave that legacy to help inspire younger players because I didn't have a role model growing up."
