If College Living girls love one thing, it’s celebrating other powerful women. Starting last night until Oct. 6, espnW gives us a chance to do just that. Voices of the Future powered by New Balance, a five-part video series highlights the journeys of five young, accomplished female athletes. For the next five weeks College Living is bringing you each of the videos so stay tuned.
The series will take a deep look into the lives of U.S. women’s soccer star and FIFA World Cup winner Julie Johnston (above), three-time NCAA National Basketball champion Breanna Stewart, WTABritish No. 1-ranked tennis talent Heather Watson and two-time 2015 Pan American Games track and field gold medalist Shamier Little. The fifth athlete has yet to be announced, but we’re sure she will be just as fab as the rest.
espnW’s Julie Foudy will host the shows and is guaranteed to ask the athletes more than just “who are you wearing tonight?” Viewers will learn what drives these athletes to succeed, what challenges they face and who they look up to as heroes.
