Majoring in economics, Ashley wants to impact the world as an entrepreneur and as a Team Captain. Even though this is only her second year involved with PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT, she thrives by pushing women to stay active and make a change. Continue reading to get a fellow Sweat Sister's perspective and understanding of the word “sister.”
1. What is a sister to you? What makes a sisterhood?
A sister is a helper, motivator, and supporter. Consistent fundamentals like this create a sisterhood because you would never leave your sister behind. I believe that sisterhood is all about empowering each other and pushing each other to our limit. We all want to be great, so we should push others and ourselves to do so.
2. How does PGS give you what you’re looking for in a sisterhood?
3. How do you connect with the PGS sisterhood? How do you truly make them feel like they are your sisters?
4. How do you motivate your Sweat Sisters to live a healthy lifestyle?
From time to time, I’ll send motivating fitness tips and tricks, social media posts and even visuals of myself working out. Being creative has helped a lot. It generates more discussions, bonds, and suspicion for other creative exercises. This method really helped us this summer to stay motivated while attaining our fitness goals even though we were miles away.
5. What are some of the best parts of having a team full of motivated and fun sisters?
6. For the women who want to be a part of a strong sisterhood, how would you make the PGS bond different than other organizations?
7. This week or for the rest of this month, how do you suggest other PGS teams connect and cherish their sisters? What can you do better to build the PGS sisterhood?
I challenge all the PGS teams to create an event or a challenge that signifies National Sisters Day. This will allow the chapters to come up with creative ideas on how to connect more with your Sweat Sisters, while also cherishing those moments. I believe that more bonding events that require you to partner up with someone you haven’t met before will build the PGS sisterhood. This automatically opens more space and opportunities for networking, and more skills you probably didn’t know you ever had!
8. Why do you think National Sisters Day should be celebrated? Do you think it deserves more than a day?
