Why is your involvement with Athena racing important? Getting involved with Athena Racing is important to me because I have a 7-year-old niece that means the world to me. I want her to grow up feeling empowered, and for her to have the strength to pursue whatever her heart desires… even when the space she wants to enter is traditionally male-dominated. Athena Racing helps pave the way for young girls like my niece, and this is why I want to be a part of an organization that is so uplifting.
