Sports taught me stregth, resilience, tenacity, and perseverance. They taught me how to love something despite it not always being easy to love. Sports hone the competitive spirit needed to fight for what you want, whether it be a win, a grade, or a job, and they play a vital role in building strong, determined, passionate, and driven women- the kind of women that will be movers and shakers in the world. Gender equality doesn’t necessarily mean that we all have the same resources and opportunities; it means that there is an active fight to obtain equal resources and opportunities. It means seeing that each gender is equally worthy of having these resources and opportunities, and not invalidating the needs of particular athletes based on their genetic disposition.
