One of the privileges of my life: teaching at taekwondo. Today I worked with two young white belt girls. They were fierce, bold and assertive. They delighted me greatly. Louder than the boys in my group, energetic and solid kicks: I was massively proud.
Our culture spends too much energy holding girls back. Emphasis upon fitting in, on being unassuming. I love seeing these kids beat back stereotypes. I see great things for these fierce young woman.
