#Team Pride Socks
Pride Socks is all about empowering you to realize your self-worth, to be proud of who you are and to chase your dreams. All the while inspiring others to do the same. We are all born leaders and have the ability to make a difference in our own lives and in the lives of those around us. We realize the journey to where you want to go takes practice, patience, courage, the ability to fall and get right back up, and motivation, which all make the dream chasing that much more glorious once each baby step is achieved.
At Pride Socks, we are about celebrating the journey with you and recognizing what it takes to get there. We all have it in us and if in doubt, look down at your Pride Socks and remember you have everything it takes in you already to get where you want to go.
We would like to introduce our team who take pride in challenging the everyday bumps to accomplish their goals/dreams.
Bryce Ava Wettstein
Bryce's passion for skating and surfing is easily felt when you are around her and is contagious. She is amazing at both sports and is the sweetest, most humble, and hard working person you will meet. There is probably not a day that goes by she isn't practicing one or both sports, cross training, motivating others, and guiding her little sister to doing her best, all while maintaining straight A's in school.
Sky is challenging everything there is about being on the board and isn't stopping there. She has a heart that leads her to help other girls who are not as fortunate as her and teach them they have the ability to do whatever it is they want to do. If you ever meet her, she will greet you with the biggest smile and warm your heart instantly.
Emily was born prematurely at 29.4 weeks, weighing little more than a kilogram and was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Emily is an ambassador for children with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. She is very proud of her disability and wants other children to also know that having a disability shouldn’t stop you from doing what you want to do or what you love doing – it just means you may need to find a different way of doing it.
In Emily’s own words: “I am very proud of myself because I have a go at everything and I never stop trying. Even if it is hard for me, I still give it a go, sometimes I just need to do it in a different way to others. It is important to me that people don’t think that I can’t do something just because I have cerebral palsy. Sometimes I just need a little bit of help. I am also very proud of the fact that I have taught myself to walk, especially when my brain is telling my body not to work.” While Emily’s disability is an important part of her and it has shaped the amazing little girl that she is, she has many different dimensions to her character and would like others to recognize that: “I want people to know that there is more to me than just my disability. I am funny, I am nice, I am kind, I am a good friend and I love doing all the same things that all the other kids do.”
