Women's Soccer's Sullivan Helps Level the Playing Field
As GW Women's Soccer Opens Preseason, Watch Junior Kayley Sullivan Discuss Her Summer in Bolivia
Aug. 5, 2011
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Junior forward Kayley Sullivan and the George Washington women's soccer team began preseason training on the newly renovated turf at Mount Vernon Athletic Field Friday afternoon. Sullivan returns to Foggy Bottom after spending a portion of her summer sharing her skills and values with young women in Bolivia.
Sullivan interned with District-based non-profit organization Level Playing Field, Inc. (LPF), with which she spent three weeks in Bolivia empowering the country's youth through the game of soccer. The purpose of LPF is to help create equal opportunities for young women in both North and South America by bringing people of diverse backgrounds together to facilitate positive social change through sport.
"The goal of the camp is to bring strong female role models into a country where violence against women is incredibly prevalent," said Sullivan. "There are a lot of gender equality issues and we wanted to teach the girls things like leadership and perseverance."
