This athletic nine year old's love of soccer was the inspiration for our Soccer Girl shirt. She's been playing since she was five years old. Along with soccer, Madison also plays basketball, runs track, does gymnastics, and still makes the honor roll at school. Madison's mom describes her as, "kind hearted, hard working, outgoing and adventurous. She can be very tough and very sensitive at the same time. She makes friends wherever she goes. If left alone with a group of 10 unfamiliar kids, in no time she will have 10 new friends, regardless of their age, gender, background or even if they speak the same language. She is not afraid of anything and stands up for she believes in."
Here's more from Madison:
What I like about myself… I like my curly hair and that it makes me different. I like that I am funny and strong.
Something that I think makes me unique is… my hair and my sense of humor.
Sometimes when I’m feeling silly I like to… doodle funny notes.
The bravest thing I’ve ever done is… sing in front of people for the first time.
What I’m scared of is… nothing.
What I’d like people to know about me is… that I am a good friend.
What I’d like to try someday… is to be a first woman president and I really like to try skydiving.
Things I can do that make me feel proud are… when I finally learn a really hard move at gymnastics, or when I beat a hard level in a video game, I feel the most proud when I do something hard I never did before and push my limits.
Huge thanks to Madison for sharing a little bit about herself with us! See Madison's Soccer Girl shirt.
