This is a spec ad and portrait of two of the world's best youth boxers, Meryland Gonzalez and Steven Navarro. These two world class athletes fight in-and-out of the ring with dreams of a better future for their communities.

The inspiration behind the piece came from a saying that Meryland's dad, Jorge

calls her which is, "Concrete Rose"--meaning that she's an image of hope, resilience, and beauty, emerging from a tough area. We hope Meryland's and Steven's story not only inspires kids to take pride in where they come from, but also encourages them to fight for a better future for their communities.
