A huge thanks to Danika and Athelia for coming out to help with the evening! Danika played soccer at Trinity University and Athelia played for BYU. They were awesome!
The coaches of both the Indian and Pakistani teams.
These Indian and Pakistani girls are paving the way for women's soccer and women's equality in their respective countries. They were so impressive and had such interesting life stories. While at the Lincoln Memorial, Jackie talked to the girls about who Abraham Lincoln was, and what America used to be like. She also talked to them about Martin Luther King, and his "I have a Dream" speach. The girls were then challenged to write their dreams, and their goals in notebooks provided by G4G while sitting near the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool.
It was a wonderful evening, and Goals for Girls felt honored to spend this evening with such inspiring girls!
