“You can’t be what you can’t see.” - Makena

The athlete who inspired some of the world’s best isn’t even on a roster this summer. She isn’t a professional soccer player. She isn’t even being recruited. (Yet.)

She’s a ten-year-old girl. Meet Makena. #justdoit



Crazy dreams take crazy effort.

18 career majors. 12 French titles. Congratulations @rafaelnadal. #justdoit



“Whatever happens, we’re a team. In defeat as much as in victory. It’s impossible to win by yourself.” @amandine_henry

When Amandine Henry and her teammates were young, they could only dream of an opportunity like this.

Today, that dream becomes reality.

Don’t change your dream. Change the world. #justdoit



“Even if I were born again, I’d still play football.” @ji_soyun10

Ji So-Yun's dream isn’t to be one of the best female football players in the world.

Ji dreams of becoming one of the best players in the world, period. #justdoit



“It’s important for girls to believe in themselves, because if you believe in yourself that means you can do anything.” - Makena, Age 9, #justdoit



“Whatever happens, we’re a team. In defeat, as much as in victory. It’s impossible to win by yourself. Impossible. And I think that, if you perform well individually, you’ll perform well collectively.”

French midfield general Amandine Henry knows it takes a whole team to win and now, as captain of her country, she’s not afraid to lead that team.

Don’t change your dream. Change the world. #justdoit



“I’m really happy to be able to inspire the next generation of girls. That they now have female role models, and can see what they can achieve so that they’ll work hard and eventually follow in my footsteps.”

As a child Netherlands’ star Lieke Martens told everyone she wanted to become a professional footballer. When they replied: “Dream on, girl” that’s exactly what she did.

Don’t change your dream. Change the world. #justdoit



“One of the biggest things is just trusting yourself.” @naomiosaka

Just because your situation changes doesn’t mean you have to. #justdoit



“Find your joy and make sure that you give 100 percent in everything you do.”

England striker Fran Kirby never changed her dream of playing for England even though there was a time she fell out of love with football. But her dream was always there and she rediscovered her love for the game. This summer, she prepares to return with the Lionesses again on the world’s biggest stage.

Don’t change your dream. Change the world. #justdoit



“He’s always trying to push me because he knows I’m going to improve.” @carogarcia

Sometimes your first coach is your best one.

Caroline's father has guided her from her first tournament to her latest one. Challenging her and comforting her. Pushing her and patting her on the back. Celebrating and commiserating.

Traditionally, elite tennis players move on. They “grow up” and work with someone else. Obviously, Caroline is anything but traditional. #justdoit



"Talent is not enough, it's important to be determined and disciplined."

German midfielder Sara Däbritz always knew she was going to turn her childhood dream of becoming a professional footballer into a reality. So now it’s time for a new dream: that women’s games will sell out stadiums.

Don’t change your dream. Change the world. #justdoit
