Throw Like A Girl
Girls and young women today have access to endless amounts of information, but there are so many conflicting messages about what is considered the norm when it comes to body image, beauty and acceptable behavior. Two-time Olympian, athletic icon, wife, mother and role-model Jennie Finch, who retired from softball last year and just welcomed her second child earlier this year, wants to speak directly to these young girls. Finch is sharing her secrets to success and ways for young girls to empower themselves and make the right choices in her brand-new book: Throw Like a Girl: How to Dream Big and Believe in Yourself. Jennie struggled to fit in as a young girl and was constantly stereotyped. Rather than accepting the labels others put on her she chose to apply the key lessons she learned from playing sports to all facets of her life to become the person she is today.
