Hi, I am an 8th grade girl and I justed wanted to let you know that I joined my school's wrestling team and I am the 1st girl in the history of my school to be on the wrestling team. I thought you may want to know that just in case. Thanks for letting me tell you. - Mandy

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and for sharing your success with us. Congratulations, too--being the first girl on the wrestling team is certainly something to be proud of. And one of the added bonuses is that you have now made it possible for other girls to do what you have done. The "first" one is always the hardest. And, now, because of you, other girls will be able to be wrestlers if they want to and they will be able to look to you as an inspiration for making that happen.

Thanks for sharing--I'm glad you did, and congratulations, again


Amy
