What does being a tomboy mean to you?
I guess I just really wanted to stress my point that for me being a tomboy is about learning to be who you want to be without having any boundaries set based on gender. I used to struggle with finding the balance….On one hand, I wanted to prove I could be as tough as any of the guys, that I could do anything they could do and didn’t need a “guy” to do things for me (my competitive nature coming out), and on the other I still enjoyed getting dolled up (on rare occasions) and spa dates with the girls. It took me a while to realize there didn’t need to be a negative connotation around being “a girl” and that as long as I could be the best version of myself, it wasn’t about gender roles at all.
Who's your favorite tomboy?
Holly Rilinger! She is one bad ass who is one of the top coaches, trainers and motivational individuals in the fitness industry. When odds were stacked against her she made her dream of being a professional basketball player come true and is now a Nike Master Trainer and the CEO of her own company. She kicks some serious ass and motivates others to do the same...plus she's got a rockin' bod that no one would want to mess with!
