The image competition is sponsored by Getty Images for Team SCA at the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race. Team SCA is the first all female racing team since 2004.  Using the concept "ordinary women doing an extraordinary thing". 

It was important for me to select women in my life who inspire me with their courage, creativity, knowledge, and determination. 

Karate Girl Power I selected my daughter Jordan and her karate teammates Tanya, Mina, and Lynell. Jordan, Tanya, and Lynell earned a spot on USA National Karate Team to compete in Team Kata for The Pan American Karate Championships and The World Karate Championships. Sadly Jordan injured her ACL in training which required surgery and a six month recovery. Mina was able to step so the other girls would not miss out. Tanya, Mina, and Lynell earned a Bronze metal in Peru and will be competing in Bremen, Germany November 2014 for The World Karate Championships.  Competing at this level of Karate takes an enormous amount of hard work and determination. Despite her injury Jordan remained positive and focused on her recovery.  She will be supporting her teammates in spirit in November.

Paving the Way Following in the footsteps of her father, Sgt. Cindy Sweasy chose a career in law enforcement. The challenges of working in this male dominated profession did not discourage her.  She defined her own path and paved the way for other female police officers. She became the first female police Sergeant at the Westminster Police Department in 2009.  She is an inspiration, role model, and mentor to the men and women of the Westminster Police Department. 

Doctors House Museum -Inspired by sister’s creativity & generosity. She works full time as a costumer in the film industry & in her spare time volunteers as a docent for The Glendale Historical Society.
