Thank you for stopping by P3 and reading my post. I have been writing online for the US since 2009 and I enjoyed doing travel files very much.

In the 21st century, we have seen the rise of empowered women who have made a mark in their fields. We have looked up to them as models to be imitated. They have shown us how great it is to be alive and do what we are passionate about.

 In the book, “Gutsy Girls: Young Women Who Dare,” twenty-five women from the United States were featured by being courageous in fulfilling their dreams. Since they have varied passions, they have motivated and inspired ladies worldwide to hold on to their dreams. One day, their dreams can become real.


Mountain climbing, skydiving, ocean sailing, football playing, mountain bike racing, rock climbing, competing in judo, hunting for fossils, wakeboarding, drag racing, world traveling, snowboarding, performing in a circus, building a home, swimming, kickboxing, surfing, cycling, skating, doing research in the Antarctic, serving in the US Navy, and being recognized for athletics. All of these are passions of the Gutsy Girls in the book. They love what they do and were recognized for their achievements in these fields.


From their real stories, they experienced a lot of challenges and struggled to be able to fulfill their dreams. Indeed, it took them a lot of courage, determination, and practice to reach this level. They are young adult women from the United States who have made an impact and difference in the lives of other ladies. Since they were able to do what they are passionate about and succeed in their chosen endeavors, the rest of the ladies outside the United States can, too.
