Yusra Mardini read by Diana Nyad
Once, there was a girl who loved to swim. Her name was Yusra Mardini. She was born in Damascus, Syria, a country long gripped by war. When her home was destroyed by a bomb she knew she had to leave the country, so she and her family fled by way of a boat filled with too many refugees. When the motor broke down, she and her sisters became heroes, swimming and pulling the boat to safety. In Germany, Yusra found glory as one of the first refugee teams ever to compete in the Olympics.Sponsored by:www.rebelgirls.co Use promo code REBELPODCAST to get 15% off your first purchase!ABOUT DIANA NYADOn September 2, 2013, at the age of sixty-four, Diana Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage, swimming 111 miles in fifty-three hours from Havana to Key West.

Virginia Hall read by S. Mitra Kalita
Once, there was a girl with a wooden leg who was a master of disguise. Her name was Virginia. She loved adventure, hunting, and traveling the world. She wanted to join the Foreign Service but was denied entry; they didn't allow amputees. And so she became a spy for the Allied forces during World War II. She was really good at her job and put her life at risk many times in the name of freedom. She was even put on a "most-wanted" list by the German secret police! She went on to become one of the first women to work at the Central Intelligence Agency.Sponsored by:www.rebelgirls.co Use promo code REBELPODCAST to get 15% off your first purchase!S.

Madam C.J. Walker read by Poorna Jagannathan
Once upon a time, there was an inventor and entrepreneur named Madam C.J. Walker. She was the child of slaves, the first in her family to be born free, thanks to the Emancipation Proclamation. As a child, she had to work in the cotton fields to help support her family. Later, as a teenaged orphan, she became a washerwoman, backbreaking work considered one of the worst and most difficult jobs a woman could have. But she dreamed of more -- for herself and her daughter. When, due to an illness, her hair began to fall out, she created a hair care regimen specifically for African-American women. It worked! She crisscrossed the country going door to door to sell her products and eventually built a beauty empire with sales representatives in every state. The formula grew to be so popular she became the first self-made female millionaire in America, and her products are still for sale today.Sponsored by:www.rebelgirls.co Use promocode REBELPODCAST to get 15% off your first purchase!Poorna Jagannathan is an actress and the producer of "Nirbhaya" ('Fearless'), the critically-acclaimed play written and directed by Yael Farber.
