Mo'Ne Davis Continues to Be Awesome

At The Root, Yesha Callahan reports that Little League phenom Mo'Ne Davis has "teamed up with M4D3 to design a sneaker with proceeds helping impoverished girls around the world."
[Davis] has partnered with M4D3 (Make A Difference Everyday) and Because I'm a Girl to release a Davis designed sneaker. The sneakers are modestly priced at $75 and are designed to replicate the stitching on a baseball. 15% of the proceeds from the sneakers will support the Plan Because I Am A Girl initiative, which helps poverty stricken girls in developing countries.

"I never thought at the age of 13 I'd be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool," Davis stated in a press release. "If I can inspire them to reach their goals, that would be even cooler. Designing shoes with M4D3 is exciting and I wanted them to support Because I am a Girl to help girls and give them a chance at a better future."

At the mere age of 13, Davis has once again proven to be a role model for people of all ages. Imagine if professional athletes with clothing and sneaker lines also did something similar. I can only wonder how many people can be fed off the sales of a Kanye West or Air Jordan sneaker.
I hope it's not only young girls who look up to Mo'Ne Davis, because she might only be 13 years old, but she is a titan.
