There is something special when young women come together for a common purpose, especially when that common purpose is surfing. Girls push each other to progress, cheer for one another’s accomplishments, and take the edge off of life by just having fun, goofing around, singing songs, and connecting with nature.
Thanks to my ambassadorship with prAna, I offer free monthly surfing clinics to provide young women on Maui a place to do exactly that. Through surfing these girls see beyond the wave, bringing with them valuable lessons to instill in every facet of their lives. This special Kelly Clinic was a day to remember, when prAna’s swimwear designer, Megan Ray, joined in on the fun and shared with us her passion for design: relating surfing with creativity, and creativity with career pathways. The girls got to draw up their own designs, and explain how their suit functions, giving them a taste of what it could be like to be a swimwear designer.
Together, Megan and I showed the girls how our passions shaped our careers, hoping to inspire the younger generation of females to seek out their own passions, and pursue their dreams in everything they do.
I love hanging with these girls each month. They inspire me to keep pushing myself creatively and professionally. Please enjoy the video above, I know I had a blast making it, and I think it shows. Mahalo.
