It's International Women's Day and we'd like to give a shout out to all the girls out there who are absolutely killing it in everything they do.
We'd also like to introduce you to some girls you may not know but definitely should.
Sari Simpson-Jones is a vert skater from Australia and she recently took second at the Australian Bowl Riding Championships in Bondi. She's inspiring to watch and she always gives a shout out to her fellow feamle skaters and we love that. Follow her on Instagram @sarisimpsonjones
Sam Gordon age 9 decided to play football, no matter what anyone else said, including a teacher who repeatedly told her dad she should stop. Her YouTube video above (showing her 2014 highlights) is amazing in itself, but seeing her speak up on what it means to be a girl doing what she loves is priceless. And yeah, we'd buy that Wheaties box with Sam on the front any day of the year. Follow Sam on Instagram at @sam_gordon6
Nikita Ducarroz dared to put out a video of herself in 2013 doing back flips, 360's, box jumps and more on her BMX bike and called it THIS IS MY KITCHEN. She's now all of 18 and still riding and living life fearlessly. As she says "I live and breathe BMX". We can't wait for her new edit to drop. Check out Nikita on instagram @nikitabmxgirl
Last but not least, Dax McGill. 16 year old pro surfer. World Traveler. Her instagram is nothing short of inspirational. She also does photography and skateboards in her "spare time". We love that she is charging hard but loving life along the way. Can't wait to see what's next for her! Check out her instagram @daxmcgill
There are so many girls out there taking the world by storm, so make sure you leave supportive words on their FB walls, instagram pages or even a positive word or two makes a huge impact if you see them in person. It's something we should be doing each and every day to support one another.
Happy International Women's Day!
