I loved being a cheerleader and I’m thankful for the trials and tribulations during my third year, as well as the extraordinary opportunities during all three of my years… but I had to make the choice that having God was more important than losing my identity in the uniform. For me, it was about staying true and trusting that my faith was growing in Jesus Christ.
To all the women: When speaking up, you may feel small, you may experience resistance, your voice may crack, your knees may shake, your eyes may tear up, your heartbeat may race and your palms may sweat… do it scared anyway, knowing you have a valuable place in this world.
I am praying for a positive difference and for women to rise up together with support and love. I have faith! ❤️🙏🏻 #cheeringforGod
Thank you so much The Players’ Tribune for having genuine hearts and the passion to make a difference! And thank you to everyone who has shown me love and God’s truth throughout this process. Your prayers are the best gift!
With joy and love,
Kristan Ann 🙂
