More Than a Game: Female Empowerment Through Sports
Bolivia, South Africa, India, New Zealand
How do sports help women fight stereotypes, get an education, improve social status, gain confidence, and build character? Just as sports influenced my development and helped me overcome childhood fears and limitations, I want to see how sports programs, on an international scale, provide similar opportunities for female growth. I will work closely with girls, coaches, teams, athletic programs and diverse communities to deepen my understanding of the impact of athletic participation and learn which models facilitate the most positive development.
