I came to skateboarding later in life (24), and one of the reasons I love it so much is that every moment on a skateboard represents a fear that is being conquered. I love encouraging other women to chase after their fears as well, and I feel that skateboarding is a life-changing activity. While I used to compete at other sports to try to win, I joined skateboarding contests in order to meet and skate with other women. That's when I met Courtney and her big idea to give the gift of skateboarding to girls all across the country so that the ratio of girls to boys skating might even out and change the course of so many lives. I have helped out with clinics as well as preparing the tax documents, and it is so fun to share the joy of skateboarding. Every clinic leaves a wave of friendships and new attitudes about what is possible.
