Hi there! I'm so glad you're here.
I was inspired to start Tharros through my own personal experience and journey with rebuilding my confidence. By the time I reached high school, I struggled with my confidence and I stopped doing the one thing I loved most-- playing soccer.
When I rediscovered my confidence as an adult and began doing the things I loved again, I realized just how much I missed out on over the years. I made the connection between my experience and the experience that so many adolescent girls have today. And it keeps girls from playing it big, speaking up, standing out, and becoming leaders that challenge the status quo. When we invest in girls (and women), we create a ripple effect that lifts up entire communities. Imagine if we could do things differently and empower more girls to live up to their full potential? Now that's a world I want to envision for the future.
