Always wants to change that, and I love them for it! I think it's so bold and brazen that they used the Super Bowl as a platform to get the discussion started and, secretly, I hope those who hurled "like a girl" insults are now seeing the error of their ways.
When I saw the commercial, I immediately thought of Ella, and I smiled. Ella is 7 and she loves, loves, loves sports. I think it's fabulous that she will grow up in an era where she will have a chance to express herself through her athleticism and where insults against girls and women are (hopefully) not tolerated. All I can say is, you go, girl!
To capture Ella's zest for life, spunky attitude, and love for the Terps, there really was no other option: We had to do a mini session at the University of Maryland's Xfinity Center. How cool is that?!? It was so much fun watching Ella in her element, dribbling a basketball, running up and down the court, and posing with Testudo the Terapin. Ella is an incredibly talented athlete and I can't wait to see where the future takes her!
