Wonder Woman Wednesday: Alex Morgan

Wonder Woman Wednesday: Alex Morgan

A childhood dream

What is perhaps one of the most impressive facts about Morgan is that at just 8 years old, she penned a touching note to her mother saying that she was going to be a professional footballer when she grows up. Now this may be far more realistic than what many children aspire to (e.g. superheros and spies), but still quite an ambition.

Incredibly, the young Alex Morgan never changed her mind or gave up, and it definitely paid off. After 2 decades of hard work, she is now one of the most famous female football player inthe world.

Confidence

Morgan has collaborated with a number of big brands to show young girls everywhere that believing in yourself is vital to achieving your goals (pun unintended).


For such a male-dominated sport, it’s so important to show the younger generation that your gender doesn’t define what you’re capable of. 

Being a huge advocate for women’s sports, she valiantly uses her massive social media following (2.12 million on Twitter alone) to spread positivity and inspire others.

“We have such a big responsibility because so many young girls have such a big opportunity that 20 years ago they didn't have in sports”
