Sky - Spirit to Inspire..Hi, I'm Sky Brown. I'm an 8 year old Skater girl from Miyazaki, Japan.

I'm also the youngest person to have ever skated in the Vans US open.

My Skateboarding has given me a unique opportunity to travel and inspire other girls. I feel this is something that I was born to do, and I want to use my skateboarding for something special, but I need some help in accomplishing my goal.

 

The goal is to inspire and empower children that are in especially low income Areas, around the world. I hope to go with my family to as far as Australia, Africa, Afghanitstan and Palestine. I know I can make a positive impact on the childrens lives by using my skateboard. but first things first I plan on starting with the roughest areas of LA.

                   My first mission is to connect, talk and skate with children in very low income areas around LA. I hope to inspire them with skateboarding and show them that whatever their dreams are, if they do there best then anything is possible.

I know that kids relate to kids, and I really want to connect and make friends and hopefully inspire other children through Skateboarding. I believe that being 8 years old makes it way easier for other kids to relate to me. I also hope to encourage kids to stay in school. and most of all realise that they are special and can do anything that they Dream. 

 Over the past few years I have had an overwhelming amount of response, from both Girls and Boys and their parents around the world explaining how they have been inspired by me and my Skateboard. and I hope to bring this to the children that REALLY need it.
