Silvana Lima - Best Female Surfer in Brazil

I love this BBC video report about Silvana Lima, the best female surfer in Brazil. It's an inspiring story for girls all around the world.

Being the best female surfer in Brazil wasn't enough to secure Silvana Lima the sponsorship she needed for her surfing career.

In an image-driven market, she wasn't considered pretty enough to get full sponsorship for the first 13 years of her career.

Silvana refused to let that stop her.
