Yes, I’m still here, even though I’ve been on blog silence for a while. Sorry about that.
As an author who writes about girls in sports, I can’t help but get the warm and fuzzy feels whenever I hear about real life stories of girls expressing dominion and awesomeness on the court or on the field. I also love hearing about the positive influences coaches can have by being a positive role model and helping their players achieve success and grow as a person both on and off the field. Therefore, I couldn’t help but post this video of Mo’ne Davis. You go girl!!
At just 16 years old, Mo'ne Davis has had her jersey retired next to Derek Jeter's, spent time with Michele Obama at the The White House, and graced the cover of Sports Illustrated…to name a few. But behind her vast accomplishments is a story of one girl and a team of believers who refused to let circumstances stop her from her dreams.
