From the press release:
This Chicken Soup For The Soul Moment teaches us about the great places dedication and hard work can bring you. Back in 2013, then 18-year-old Monique Avin from Brooklyn, New York, brought us into her life of rowing. The teen took up rowing to help her succeed academically, physically and mentally. She tells us that the dedication and hard work it takes to row has helped her grow in all other aspects of life. She joined Row New York in her sophomore year of high school. The organization empowers young people by build helping strength, gain confidence, and pursue excellence through the unique sport.
