Abbie is the 11 year old girl who has started a magazine about women in sport.
Abbie joined Mike to tell us about digital magazine ‘Her Way‘. While flicking through magazines in a waiting room she noticed they hardly mentioned her female sporting heroes. So with some help from her parents, she wrote articles, made layouts and designed puzzles for her magazine.
The first issue of Her Way was launched on the 24th September costing $2. Half of the proceeds go to UNICEF Australia’s Empower Girls Through Cricket appeal. She aimed to have 50 readers but has sold more than 270 copies.
“If you have a dream just go for it! It might turn out well, it might not. But, I’m 11 and I had no idea that I would be in this position right now…I guess none of it would’ve happened if I hadn’t just gone for it!”
