Coach Shume Akhter on how STARS Series girls are natural leaders: β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” "At Baxter Street, there is already a soccer club. About 5 of the PowerPlay girls also joined that club, so when we were learning soccer, the girls from PowerPlay were willing to be helpers." β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” "It was astonishing for the girls to naturally take the lead and for the other girls to respect them and follow their leads. Through this it became easier and faster to start playing the game." β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #PowerPlayNYC #Testimonial #Basketball #YouthDevelopment #GirlBoss #GirlPower #JustDoIt #WomenEmpowerWomen #WomenInSports #NYCFit #TheFutureIsFemale #NYCYouthDevelopment #GirlBoss #FemaleLeaders #FemaleLeadership #STARSSeries

Our #WonderWomanWednesday this week is @jameelajamilofficial Jameela Jamil, actress, model and activist who survived congenital ear issues, anorexia, a car accident and a breast cancer scare to become a champion for persons with disabilities and promoting a positive body image for women and girls through her Instagram account @i_weigh, which she founded to remind "...us to feel valuable and see how amazing we are, and look past the flesh on our bones". No surprise she's one of BBC's 100 Women during 2018. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” We love Jameela's conviction and strength, for being a role model for girls' healthy self-perception in a world that often does not want to look beyond what they see. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #FearlessFemale #WomenEmpowerWomen #PowerPlayNYC #WomenEntreprenuers #WomenInBusiness #GirlBoss #Entrepreneurship #TheFutureIsFemale #RoleModel #FemaleLeaders #SucccessfulWomen #GameChangers

Coach Anjanique Rose on how girls in the STARS Series at PS/ I.S 157 went from strangers, to friends, to a team: β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” β€œThe girls were standoffish, they didn’t want to be embarrassed if they didn’t do something right, especially since they have never met me, and some have never played volleyball before." β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” "Once the sessions started rolling out each week, you can see how the mood shifted and they were able to let loose and enjoy themselves. With each week that came and went, the girls grew stronger together, acknowledging one another with respect." β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” "When a game starts going and someone gets hit with the ball, instead of brushing it off, everyone automatically stops to make sure that she is okay and gives her words of encouragement, so she isn’t discouraged to continue playing." β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” "They lift each other’s spirit up so no one is left out and they could enjoy one another as a team.” β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #PowerPlayNYC #Testimonial #Basketball #YouthDevelopment #GirlBoss #GirlPower #JustDoIt #WomenEmpowerWomen #WomenInSports #NYCFit #TheFutureIsFemale #NYCYouthDevelopment #GirlBoss #FemaleLeaders #FemaleLeadership #STARSSeries
