Dream Big Princess has been inspiring kids all over the world to follow their dreams by sharing the inspirational stories of real-life girls and women through the #dreambigprincess Photography Campaign and Global Video Series.
This year, Dream Big, Princess continues its goal of empowering the next generation to reach for the stars by supporting the Julie Foudy and espnW Sports Leadership Academy to send 20 girls from under-served communities to the Academy’s sports camp in New Jersey.
The sponsorship will help encourage the girls to follow their athletic dreams and give them the opportunity to gain leadership skills both on and off the field.
Dream Big, Princess aims to make a difference for girls who face challenges in achieving their dreams and participating in sports is one real way girls can develop the confidence and drive they need on the path to achieving success.
