5 Inspiring Female Athletes And Their Powerful Life Stories
If you were asked who are the most inspiring female athletes and role models out there, what would you answer? What names or characters come to mind? Personally, I am equally inspired by both male and female athletes. To me the passion for what you do, grit and the message you share with the world matters much more than results. Luckily, the world of sports, performance and adventure knows no gender. It accepts everyone and anyone is welcome to join the movement.
How Taking Up A Team Sport Could Help Shake Up Your Career
Women are much less likely than men to play competitive sports – and we may be missing out on an important source of emotional, mental and professional wellbeing as a result. Research suggests that playing team sports can actually be hugely beneficial to our mental and emotional wellbeing – and even boost our careers.
