She can do anything, she’s Sky Brown!

From shredding half-pipes to tearing up the dance floor, this 12-year-old powerhouse is an unstoppable talent! We recently caught up with Sky during our Instagram live series Friends From Afar, and learned what this star athlete has been up to: from hosting the Rebel United Girl Rally in celebration of International Day of the Girl to releasing her debut anthem “Girl” (which we’ve been blasting on repeat), and everything in between!

And even though this year, which would have been her official Olympic debut, didn’t go as planned, Sky still opened up about how important it is for her to keep her head up, especially because her ultimate goal is to inspire and encourage others to follow their dreams, no matter how many obstacles stand in their way:

“Skateboarding teaches you to never give up because you’re gonna fall…it’s gonna be hard…the trick might take a long time to make…but you have to just keep on going if you want to make your tricks better, bigger, higher!”
