Caitlyn Jenner Talks Over Coming Obstacles In New H&M Campaign
In a new video for H&M’s “For Every Victory” campaign, spokesperson Caitlyn Jenner talks about overcoming obstacles big and small.
Over a montage featuring athletes who have overcome obstacles of their own, including Chelsea Werner, a gymnast with Down syndrome, Jenner remembers feeling defeated before actually achieving greatness. “I thought it was too late. I thought the goal was too far away. I felt like I couldn’t do it alone or with the entire world watching my every step,” she admits.
“Nothing came easy — but nothing truly important ever does,” she continues. “To keep going no matter what the obstacles is what victory looks like, whether you’re representing your country — or yourself.”
The campaign, which also features footage of Jenner competing in the Olympics, serves as an homage to her overcoming obstacles as an athlete and coming out as transgender.
