THE MANY STORIES OF #BETRUE

THE MANY STORIES OF #BETRUE

The eight million stories that make up the neighborhoods we peruse though day in and day out are what makes New York City special. Each story is unique, however commonalities we share from borough to borough build communities that span race, gender, belief and sport. From an athletic perspective, we all share the same instrument that allows us to become athletes. Many of these stories, like the creator of A Dapper Chick and She’s A Gent, show how staying true to one’s truth transcends the culture of sport and style.

Founder of She's A Gent, Danielle Cooper strives to be anything, but ordinary. Using her love of sport and her sense of style, she has taken the ongoing project of She’s A Gent, a sartorial journal showcasing women in menswear and sportswear, from an online destination for fashion lovers and menswear to stylishly standing for causes creating positive change in sport and culture. In this, from fashion to athletic lifestyle, Danielle crosses barriers, merges ideas, and increases awareness to how anyone can stand for reaching his/her greatest potential in style.

Along with Danielle’s story is colleague and creator of A Dapper Chick Sara Geffrared. Sara’s message is clear from the start; being true is acceptance of who you are as a person, choosing to be the best person you can be and doing what you love well enough to inspire the masses. Sara aims to take her influence further than just NYC, engaging viewers from all over the world. From running and a love for soccer to style, Sara spends time creating looks that destroy constructs that have far too often stagnate gender and preference. Together the two will be part of the #BETRUE Panel discussing the universality of sport, the state of diversity and reaching your full potential.
