Three High School female Chicago Soccer phenoms share their journeys of persevering and playing the game they love in a series of digital films created by O’Keefe Reinhard & Paul in support of Nike Chicago.

The Chicago women were identified to amplify Nike’s Dream Crazy campaign in celebration of the Women’s World Cup in Chicago and the brand’s summer Sport Changes Everything platform.

Identified by OKRP and Nike Chicago as role models and stand-out local athletes, each member of the trio describes how she chased crazy dreams and how sport changed their lives for the better.

 
Nayeli Rivera
The featured players include Nayeli Rivera, who instead of giving up on her soccer dreams when she found out she was pregnant her junior year of high school, chose to train harder to become the best athlete possible to provide a better future for her son.

As she says in the film “I’m going to tell people who doubted me that they were wrong. Soccer has taught me to never give up on anything.” Nayeli’s story is part Nike’s Sport Changes everything initiative and can be seen on YouTube and Instagram.
