As if Arya Stark wasn’t one of the strongest characters on tv already, the girl behind the persona has just empowered girls everywhere just a bit more.
It seems that in the last few years more and more celebrities have been influencing our girls in ways that don’t matter in real life. I don’t personally care about Kim Kardashian’s beauty treatments or Kendell Jenner’s life under the flash of Hollywood lights.
I do however feel great pride in the USA’s Women Soccer Team for their hardwork and determination. The commitment they made to their sport and the success they have accomplished is not one earned because of their looks or because they have adorned themselves in the latest and greatest designer and trends. Their success is based on their effort and unwillingness to settle for anything other than greatness.#playsoccerlikeagirl
Empowering our girls should be our focus. Commitment, dedication and self-worth is not something that could be bought but a goal to strive for. I was moved by the young Maisie Williams (A.K.A Arya Stark) for taking a step to break stereotypes and empower girls.
Her words are about breaking gender stereotypes, being authentic, and of course unstoppable “like a girl”.
I Love it!
