Carla (@carlaportillo) is professional soccer player and a Marketing and Events Manager at a non-profit autism charity. She owns her own custom shoe business called The Sole Stories (sharing the story behind the sole and the goal of donating shoes/cleats) and is an NXGN mentor, empowering and nurturing the growth of young Canadian female soccer players.
“I am a strong advocate for empowering women in sport, as well as The Give and Grow. I wanted to honour the women who defied all odds, moved past the noise, and made the "firsts" in their respective sport/Canada. I chose 11 Canadian women pioneer athletes who I believe deserve the recognition and can be the perfect role models for any future ballers. When everyone said no, they said yes. Without them, we would not be playing the sports we love today.”
100% of all proceeds collected each month will go towards workshops for youth in the Toronto community.
