NEW BLOG POST (link in profile ⬆️): Tomorrow will be the 45th anniversary of Title IX. I'm incredibly grateful to those who made Title IX happen. My life-long involvement in sports wouldn't be possible without it.⠀
Such a monumental event is worth celebrating. Check out my blog post for 9 ways you can celebrate the anniversary of Title IX! #titleixat45
I know it can be upsetting when people say nasty things about your body or your abilities but don't let them get you down.
Focus on enjoying yourself and trying your best. You might not be good at everything but you are still amazing ❤
VI SÖKER TVÅ PROJEKLEDARE!
Tack vare två händelserika fartfyllda år har Girls in Sport växt snabbt och nu behöver vi utöka teamet! Vi har utvecklat nya koncept för att öppna upp för en idrottskultur som är skapad av, med och för flickor och kvinnor. @stronggirlsproject och vår årliga festival @womeninsportandadventure är exempel på koncept som har skapat förändring – och vi vill fortsätta göra det!
Nu söker vi två ny projektledare som vill vara med och bidra till att vidareutveckla Girls in Sports verksamhet för att därigenom bidra till samhällsförändring.

In 2015 when I joined as a #TeachforIndia Fellow, I was passionate to improve academics as well as sports level of each potential kid of my school in Bhadola. When I started making my school team for games, Kajal was not on top of my mind for any game but after conducting trials, I selected her in kho-kho team. In just 7-8 days of coaching, she outperformed and became a star player.
Kajal looks like any other girl from the Bhadola, a low-income community in Delhi, a small 4-foot girl. When she went for her first Kho-Kho KKM League event the opponents also felt she was just another ordinary girl, and were happy to see that they only had to face such a small girl. They had never ever imagined that the small girl will become a nightmare for them and a beauty for the eyes of all the viewers.
In both 2015-16 and 2016-17, she became star player of KKM as well as MCD Zonal games. Finally, I took the plunge to get her get admitted to kho-kho focussed school at Kohat Enclave, where specific coaching is given for the same. But Kajal’s parents were not at all ready for the same, they became a nightmare for me, I had to take at least 5-6 counseling sessions in person and on phone of the parents. Finally, I make them seat in my car and took them to school, half-heartedly her mother agreed and started taking her to the school for coaching. The national championship was just 10 days from the coaching start day and the coach of Kohat school had already finalized the team. I personally sat with him twice and convinced him of the potential and told him the strengths, he actually found that in Kajal and finally found her better than many previous players and thus she got a chance to play in the kho-kho sub- junior national championship from Delhi. Eureka !!!! -Subodh Tiwary, @TeachforIndia Alumni
