‘She Plays We Win’ is now an ongoing photo series, a movement, and a community dedicated to uplifting young women in athletics. With the mission of sparking a conversation about the positive & life-long effects that athletics create for young women - Rose believes that strength is beautiful, perseverance is power, and confidence is super cool.
This photography project is her outlet. Look into the eyes of her portraits, and you see a confidence not only blossoming, but radiating from girls who've just uncovered the well of strength their bodies are capable of. For girls without the resources and encouragement around them, #ShePlaysWeWin proves that if they hear within them a calling to crawl in the dirt, hop on a board, sweat, stink, bleed – do anything duplicitously branded "unladylike" by who-cares-who – then it's all theirs for the taking. That their lives are written not by their gender, not by their society, not by their surrounding media and not even by fate, but themselves and themselves alone. (from Free People Blog)
