Mo’ne Davis just keeps inspiring. The South Philly native, who is the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game and the first Little Leaguer to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, has teamed up with Make a Difference Everyday shoes to design stylish, affordable sneakers for young girls. She stated in a news release,
“I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool. If I can inspire them to reach their goals, that would be even cooler. Designing shoes with M4D3 (Make a Difference Everyday) is exciting, and I wanted them to support Because I Am a Girl to help girls and give them a chance at a better future.”
The sneakers are priced at $75.
In addition, Mo’ne has penned a memoir with the help of author Hilary Beard entitled Mo’ne Davis: Remember My Name My Story from First Pitch to Game Changer, and inked movie deal with Disney. The money from the book will be used to rebuild the 17th and Fitzwater field in Philly where she was discovered and still plays with her baseball team, the Anderson Monarchs. As for the movie, “It’s pretty much just like the book. It’s about my journey.”
Go head girl!
