So far, Duchess Ride hastwo pilot sessions in place for 10-12 year olds in an after school program in Beaver Creek, Colorado. For six weeks, six girls will progress and that other word will spend one day on snow, one day off snow. Together, they'll focus on their strengths, weaknesses, image, self-esteem, accepting failure and building confidence. The girls in the program will form their own teams organically to keep up that crewistence, where friends continue to creatively progress, as a group. Supporting each other rather than battling each other for a win, to reduce competition that so many youth face. Targeting girls before their teenage years is their mission. Just as I show people how to use food as preventative medicine, Duchess Ride wants to build crewistance and confidence in young girls so they can better equipt themselves when they feel the hit of societal and cultural standards that are experienced in high school and beyond.
These adventure-loving ladies are giving young women a chance to rise into their power, discover their gifts, and share their passion for board sports in a supportive tribe.I can honestly say the inspirational women and girls I've rode with over the last 15 years with have pushed me past my snowboarding comfort zone, which has cascaded into other aspects of my life.
