Photographer Christin Rose hopes her latest series will empower young girls through sports.

Titled “She Plays, We Win,” the project features fierce photos of young female athletes ages 7 to 14. “I’m inspired by tough little girls everywhere — by their chipped nail polish, skinned-up knees and fearless spirits,” Rose told The Huffington Post.

“The project aims to celebrate confidence and athletic passions now because that will have a direct correlation on their outcome as they grow up to be strong, independent women in this ever-changing world.”
