“During middle and high school I wasn’t always confident in myself and would constantly compare myself to other girls both physically and mentally. All those thoughts and feeling would change as soon as I put on my cleats, sneakers or skates. There is something so powerful that happens when you physically challenge your body. Today as I work in a field dominated by men, I am not afraid to speak up in a meeting just because I am a woman; I feel confident in my abilities and I credit that to the confidence sports and running gave me. All girls deserve to feel confident and powerful, that’s why I am running for GOTR!”
