The story of Just like a girl as a non-profit organization was first started by 15 yrs old Olivia Dey. Olivia was a victim of a bully during her grade school days and had health issues. She started playing water polo at her teacher's recommendation when she was 12 years old. The game changed her life completely. Not only she became physically strong, but her self-esteem also improved considerably under the direction of her coaches. But while playing as the only female player in a team of boys, Olivia faced lots of resistance due to her stereotypical mindset. She has been coaching for the last two years as well and has been empowering children through sports. Soon she became an advocate of female sports. Olivia wants to share her life-changing experience in sports with more girls like her and create a generation of stronger girls through sports.
Sports is the only world where men and women could be equal. We look forward to changing the culture of female sports and build a stronger future for our girls through this organization. We created a space for strong girls to call their own. This is a call to all girls of ages 8 to 18 to be a part of the movement: #justlikeagirlinsports
