An undefeated world champion who rapidly ascended to the top of her sport, Shields has always had a relentless passion for charity and giving back. The 24-year-old has used her platform to become an outspoken advocate for the Flint water crisis in her hometown, to support survivors of sexual assault and host a summer camp to help children cope with anxiety, anger, sadness and depression, amongst her endeavors.
