L’Oréal Paris chose Nancy Chang as a 2008 Women of Worth for her volunteer work with Skate Like a Girl. Women of Worth is a grassroots program that honors women who serve others in their communities. Each year, the program selects 10 honorees across the country.
One of the 10 honorees will be selected by public vote and will be further recognized as the National Woman of Worth Honoree. The woman’s charity will receive a donation of $25,000 from L’Oréal Paris.
Seattleite Nancy Chang’s Skate Like a Girl organization helps to promote girls’ skateboarding among the underprivileged. If she wins the $25,000, Chang will use the money to help jumpstart Skate Like a Girl by touring, producing movies and providing skateboarding opportunities for girls across the country and around the world.
