Hope Solo: My Story

(Some basic knowledge)


Why Hope Solo is Important

Hope Solo is important because she has inspired many young girls and young women that not all sports are for boys and dance and cheer can be for boys too. She helped the Women's National Team win the FIFA Women's World Cup. She made many saves and if she was replaced by someone else, USA would have probably lost.

She is also important because she stood up for herself when she wasn't allowed to play soccer. That inspired me. Hope Solo was persistent and didn't give up. That's why Solo is important.
