Jade's project “Expanding Athletic Opportunities for Girls” aimed to provide the same opportunities she enjoyed growing up while playing softball to other young girls. Softball provided Jade with the opportunity to attend college and gifted her with courage, friendships, and lifelong lessons. Wanting to share the sport with other girls and provide the needed recognition and equal support, Jade hosted clinics, created skills and recruitment videos, presented a petition to city council leaders, held a used equipment drive, and promoted recreation leagues through social media and local newspaper. In the end, Jade learned how big her voice could be to evoke change in my community and beyond.
