“In a country with so much excess, it’s unacceptable that millions of kids and adults go hungry every day. Everyone can help by contributing just a little time or money. This is one fight we cannot afford to lose.”
Laila Ali, an athlete and champion of health and fitness, is a perfect role model for today’s healthy, on the-go woman. The youngest daughter of Veronica Porsche Anderson, and of the legendary Muhammad Ali, she is a strong, intelligent, woman, daughter, mom and wife. While Laila has undoubtedly been the major draw in women’s boxing for years as an undefeated title holder, she took on a new challenge, strutting her stuff in front of nearly 40 million people every week on ABC’s hit show, Dancing With The Stars. Her attention to an overall healthy lifestyle has rendered her an expert in this field. Laila has appeared in numerous magazines, including TV Guide, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, People, Ebony, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Essence, JET, ESPN the Magazine, and Time. She also authored a motivational book titled Reach! She wrote the book in an effort to help young women who may need to be inspired in life. Laila presently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, former NFL player, Curtis Conway, and their son, Curtis Muhammad Conway, Jr.
