"Fly Like a Girl" Soars to Great Heights !!!

Love the positivity with girl power and educating young girls and teen young ladies that they too, can reach their goals in any way they chose. Loved all of the history with the WWII WASP Airflight Marine Women's Program as well as all of the other military and government professionals sharing their stories. I would have liked more positivity towards young boys, too. To help explain that ALL people are created of sacred worth and not one is "better" than another. Possibly that one person may have gifts, skills, and talents in one area and another having other gifts, skills, and talents could be a better way of sharing these ideals. We can honor all without saying one is "better" than the other, that can have a negative understanding sometimes. It may just not be a trait to teach our kids. Other than that, this film was stellar. The creation and production team are FUNtastic, because this film was not just informative, but tons of fun and entertaining. Our family has recommended this film to many, many other families. As an educator, this film helps to stir the minds of children when thinking of STEM options when it comes to aeronautics, space exploration, military, and government concepts for their education and future. Thank you so much for this film and can't wait for your next project.
