This Fall, I, along with my friend Cara of Storytellers for Good will be traveling to India and Bangladesh to meet South Asia’s first female surfers. We want you to come along for the ride! We will share with you their stories and our journey through a series of blogs, short-form documentary profiles and photographs.
Why are we doing this project? Aside from the fact that it's just cool, we want to empower and inspire people. So, we will use the media as educational tools to speak on topics of female empowerment and risk taking in diverse cultures. We will also use it to inspire a culture of trailblazing women and girls to live in possibility of their dreams!
Our event, held in celebration of International Day of the Girl on October 11th, will be a memorable evening during which we'll share our video trailer, sneak peak Skype interviews with some of South Asia's first female surfers as well as details of our upcoming trip. We'll also be raffling off some cool items like:
- A surf lesson for YOU and 3 friends from The Wahine Project! (Boards, wetsuits and instruction all included)
- Clothes and gear from Patagonia
- Brown Girl Surf gear
- $160 class pass to Aha Yoga in San Francisco
- One FREE surfboard ding repair
- Storytellers for Good T-shirts and more!
