This Female Surfer & Stand Up Paddler's Tedx Talk Will Inspire You.

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Meet Tanvi Jagadish, she is all of 18 years old and an inspiration to girls everywhere.  Tanvi is the only female stand up paddle boarder and surfer to have represented India at the national and international level. The sport is still new in India, and girls and women face social disaproval for pursuing things that are deemed "for men".

The best part of Tanvi's story is that against all social norms, her grandfather is the one who encouraged her to try stand up paddling and encouraged her to keep going when others tried to shame her into stopping.

She is deeply committed to making this sport popular and more accessible in India, with the limelight on empowering girls and women to follow their dreams.

Tanvi's Tedx talk is well worth a listen!
