Engineer Your Life (The Blog)

We’re filing this under “something cool.” Kick Like a Girl is a movie that, well, kicks butt. It tells the story of a soccer team of 8 year-old girls who, in their hunt for better competition, decide to take on the boys’ team. 
Well, they just “scored” some new fans in us.

We like this. We like it a lot. These young female warriors are quite literally leveling the playing field. We want to stand up and cheer as we watch them fearlessly take on their new competition.

What strikes us most though is how, to these girls, it’s not a big deal. It is not about gender; it’s about soccer. It’s about looking for competition that challenges them and makes them better players. It’s about them.

Engineer Your Life exists to send the same message on a different field. The field of engineering. It’s not about if you are a boy or a girl. It’s about exploring an academic and career path that can (literally) build bridges, solve problems and change lives.

As the creators of Kick Like a Girl remind us in the opening of their video;  Eleanor Roosevelt said it best:

My advice to women is to get in the game, and stay there.

We couldn’t agree more.
