U.S. women's soccer star, Alex Morgan, is a gold medalist, scored in a World Cup final and was in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition.
Now she plans to tackle her greatest challenge of all… writing for children!
The series will be called The Kicks.
"It seems like only yesterday, I was a kid myself, getting my first taste of the joys of teamwork, good sportsmanship, acceptance. Playing team sports is one of the best ways I can think of to develop strong values, good work ethics, and a health-focused lifestyle. This series will no doubt widen the appeal of soccer and bring an appreciation of the sport to readers who might not otherwise have that opportunity."
That's so great!
It's some wonderful advice from someone who really knows the meaning of sportsmanship, teamwork and achieving your dreams!
Way to go, Alex!
