Nike has just released a powerful ad celebrating India's female athletes. The ad which features Deepika Padukone, displaying women power. It also features strong women running, jumping, and just doing it (understand the reference). Read on to find out more and don't miss the video at last!
She said, "When I was growing up my father said to me, "To be the best, always remember the three D's – Discipline, Dedication, and Determination. Follow your heart. Do what you are passionate about."
She added, "Sport has taught me how to handle failure. It has also taught me how to handle success. It has kept me grounded. It has taught me humility. Two years ago I struggled with depression. I was sinking. I almost gave up. But it was the athlete in me that gave me the strength to fight and never ever give up!"
"And so I want to say to every girl and every boy and every woman and every man…play a sport…because it changed my life…and it will change yours too! Sports taught me how to survive! It has taught me how to fight! It has made me unstoppable!"
You are truly a gem of a person, Deepika!
