Felicia Perez may only be 4-foot-8 but that isn't stopping her from following her dreams. Felicia always wanted to play on the football team so when she got to high school she decided to actually go for it. Despite her height, she can still keep up with the rest of the team.
She trains hard, lifts weights, and continues to get stronger and stronger each time she plays. At first, Brandywine bulldogs of Wilmington, Delaware made fun of her when she joined the team but they quickly stopped when they realized how talented she was on the field. Being the first girl to ever be on the football team at her school is an accomplishment she is extremely proud of.
She hopes that her story of perseverance inspires other girls to go after what they want. What an amazing young woman! Is there something you've always wanted to do but haven't ever been brave enough to try it?
