Earlier this year, the UA's Brigetta Barrett was looking to win an Olympic medal in the high jump. On August 11, 2012, that goal was realized when she secured a silver medal in London for a personal best jump of 6 feet 8 inches.

Whether she's acting on stage or soaring over the high jump bar, University of Arizona junior theatre major Brigetta Barrett pushes herself to rise to the occasion. "The thing that's different about me is that I'm not afraid to fall," she says. Letting go of fear and learning from mistakes will take Barrett to the 2012 Olympic Trials and hopefully to compete for gold in London this summer.
