Last year I came into contact with a company called Z Girls. Essentially Z Girls is run by two women who are creating an avenue where young girls and women can use their experience in athletics as a way to gain more confidence in other areas of their lives. The sessions are run by elite female athletes known as Leaders. The Leaders take groups of girls that are in their simiar sport, or one that has similar dynamics and they run through a cirriculum of activities that teach girls all about self confidence, motivation, peer pressure, and other issues that adolescent girls face each day.
Recently Z Girls held an Evening of Empowerment in Sammamish, Washington. We were asked to capture the excitement of the evening through video. My friend John Murphy was behind the lens and together we were able to create something that seemed to encapsulate the vibe of the event.
