Intro to Laura

Hi everyone! I’m Laura and I am a new ambassador for Dragonwing girlgear. I am in middle school, and my favorite subjects are Math and Spanish. I have always loved Math ever since I was young  because I enjoy solving problems. I have taken Spanish since kindergarten and I really love the language, and I enjoy learning more.

I have played soccer since I was three years old. I love soccer so much for so many reasons. I love hanging out with my teammates because we all become so close over the year or more that we are together. One day I hope to play soccer in college. I play center midfield which means I am in the middle of the field and I run up and down the field constantly. I used to play center back which means that I was the player that was the last line before the goal and goalkeeper. I can’t imagine not having soccer after school almost everyday. Soccer has given me so much. It has made me work really hard on my fitness, especially this summer. I would go to fitness 3 days a week for an hour and a half. I think fitness has helped a lot with my confidence and my speed. 

Some of my other hobbies are dancing, spending time with friends, sewing and playing with my pets. I have a dog and two cats whom I love very much. I dance mostly at school as an art major, but I really enjoy it. 

I’m excited to be an ambassador for Dragonwing and blog about the cute and comfy clothing!

Essentials: A Folding Chair and Thermacell

We’re adding two new “essentials” to our resources page, and these are geared towards the parents of our athletes. First, every sports mom and dad needs a quality lawn chair to watch their child compete.


Along with a sturdy chair, my most essential never-leave-home without it is my Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Outdoor and Camping Repeller Device. I know this says camping, but I use it on the fields because I am a bug magnet and on some fields, I can be eaten alive.  It’s so easy to use (I pop it in the cup holders) and covers up to 15 feet – so if the game is tense and I can’t sit still, I’m still protected.

I carry my Thermacell everywhere where I think there will be mosquitoes- I even carry it while I’m walking my dogs at night, and keep it on my picnic table at home.  It doesn’t contain deet, which is very important to me.

Thanks to Thermacell – they are graciously giving away a Thermacell to our customers from — sign up here and be entered to win.
