I am super excited to share that I am a Skirt Sports Ambassador for 2018! I have never been an Ambassador for anything, well, anything official. I mean, I try to live my life so people know what I represent.
I am an ambassador for children, and specifically girls. I spend a lot of my time, well, probably 99% of my day, supporting and encouraging the girls in my life.
- I have a 14 year old daughter who loves volleyball and track. I support her growth in those activities, alongside her desire to have amazing grades! She is 10x the girl I was at her age, and every day, she impresses me more. I strive to give her all of the support and encouragement she needs, every day of her life…
- We have a 17 year old exchange student from China. Learning about her culture is an ongoing experience. (Don’t mess with Chinese New Year!) When she started living with us, I used my English as a Second Language education to help prepare my family (don’t talk loud, or crazy slow…but don’t talk like an auctioneer either! She has to translate every word!). I also found myself trying to support her school with the academic tools they needed. I knew that the teachers had asked for assistance with working with foreign students, but, to my surprise, had been (and still aren’t) given little training. I was and still am a support for her.
- Two weeks ago, we took in a 17 year old foster daughter. Wow…the things this girl has gone through! Our plan/thought was that we were providing a safe place for her, so she could continue to be successful, just a few months from graduation. Three teenage girls in one house…none of them related. Pray for my husband.
- I work in a high school, as a librarian. Students come to us for EVERYTHING…well, not math help, if they know me! 🙂 (We do have calculators though!) I have learned about scholarships, essay writing, job applications, FASFA, college applications…as well as have calmed down and encouraged students daily. Many come to us and call us their “school mom” because we can encourage and support them at school! We love to see them succeed…and get to celebrate their successes with them also!
So, to be selected as an Ambassador to Skirt Sports, a company that encourages and inspires women of all shapes and sizes, is quite an honor. The timing of this doesn’t escape me either…I am COMPLETELY overwhelmed with life. My Achilles has me in a stagnant place with regards to my exercise life, and I have been finding myself not as happy as I would like to be. By focusing my efforts on encouraging and supporting others through this company, I can already see my happy numbers climbing!
