What a tremendous experience it was to collaborate with Angie from “Chasing my Halo.” If you haven’t heard of her before, she has an awesome blog that you shouldn’t miss! In this interview, Sarah and Angie discuss the “Play like a Girl” motto behind Girl Boss Sports, empowerment of girls and women through sports, and so much more.
Here is a sneak peek:
“Sports have always played a major role in my life – beginning at the age of 4 when I first began to play soccer. Over the course of my life, I have found that many of the lessons I learned through my sports journey also taught me many skills that helped me find success as a woman in this world. Through sports, I learned the importance of leadership, confidence, communication, and teamwork – all of which helped me successfully run several programs in the nonprofit sector during the time of my life when social work was my primary career focus. I also learned that there are many parallels between the barriers that women face in the sports world and in the workplace. When I fought for and secured equal pay, it reminded me how important it is that girls are raised to know their worth and that they are taught skills to help them negotiate success in the male-dominated world we live in. After being labeled as “too assertive” for asking to be paid equally to two men at a prior company, I became even more passionate about supporting girls and women along their journeys to live to their full potential and achieve their goals. Because of these life experiences and several others, I founded Girl Boss Sports in Seattle, WA”
