DOTB proudly welcomes...
Nzingha is a fencing phenom, whom DOTB is delighted to announce as the premier icon for the breaking of boudaries and shaking of stigmas. According to the Stuyvesant Spectator, Nzingha is currently ranked first in the national women’s cadet group (for fencers 17 years or younger), the junior category (20 years or younger) and the senior group (all ages). Last year she narrowly missed qualifying for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, partly, she said, because some key competitions interfered with school. Nzingha is on the track to competing in the 2012 Olympics.
Nzingha will serve for DOTB as an ambassador for change. DOTB intends to utilize the phenomenal achievements that Prescod has accomplished as a "eye-opener" to children of color that they too can do what their hearts desire. Most importantly, that fencing is something that they too can participate in.
Dream Outside the Box is proud to welcome Nzingha Prescod.
