Why do role models matter? Because it allows young girls to realize that they have the potential to be the next Jesse Shofner, Lien Hoffman, or the next Claire Chastain. I didn't have role models like them growing up and I hope that for the next generation of ultimate players they have great female players to look up to and inspire them to pick up a disc.

What does equity mean to you? Everyone is equal and whatever broken system that is in place is repaired so everyone can be considered an equal.
