This is the seventh post in the Confidence Stories series in partnership with Always®. Confidence Stories feature stories, tips and ideas to support girls, build their confidence, and encourage them to Keep Going #LikeAGirl.
Nikki met her mentor Hailey at a Boys and Girls Club of Hamilton program that partners mentors with girls to encourage their interest in physical activity and team sports (MacMentors and On the Move Girls). Their relationship has grown ever since, and they both have thoughts on why sports are key to fueling girls’ confidence. The Boys and Girls Club of Hamilton is a past recipient of funding from the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s Girls’ Fund.
