Gretchen Bleiler. Unstoppable Inspiration!

If you can’t be in the Olympics, it’s still pretty cool to interview an Olympian! Rebecca, a Girls Editorial Board member, got to do just that! Here’s her interview with Olympic snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler.

Gretchen tells girls how to follow their snowboarding and winter goals no matter what they are. “You will be successful when you’re doing what you love!” She says.

She shares her own long and short-term snowboarding goals along with her passion for the environment. She offers many practical tips on how we can all keep global warming at bay and keep the snow coming! In fact she challenges girls to use re-usable bags, water bottle and food containers-do this for 21 days to form a good habit. Find more tips at Stop Global Warming.

Gretchen carries her message through the “Be Unstoppable” movement – a celebration of physical activity that inspires others to be unstoppable, shines the spotlight on women and girls in active moments and shows how they can exude confidence with every move they make, every day.
