Named after a 17th century Angolan warrior queen, American female foil fencer and bronze medallist, Nzingha Prescod, has been demonstrating to the world that success both in sports and business, is not defined nor limited by background, gender or race. Spoken like a modern-day warrior, during the opening shots of a short documentary made by the National Geographic in 2016, Nzingha states "I don't like to fight people; but you can't get by without fighting."
