Laurie Hernandez 2015 Jr Champ

1. Laurie Hernandez: 117.500
2. Jazmyn Foberg: 117.400
3. Ragan Smith: 116.450

At least one of these super talents will be competing Rio, I predict. All they need to do is stay healthy. An impressive weekend for all three.

Strong Is The New Pretty

photographer Kate Parker:

“My goal with this project was to showcase my girls and their friends, to tell their story,” she added. “That there is beauty in confident, strong, fierce, messy, silly young girls. I hope that other girls see this and recognize that whatever they love, whatever makes them unique and special is beautiful and worthy of celebration, too.”
