Mo’ne Davis continued her amazing year by posing for November’s issue of “Teen Vogue” and talking about the sport she loves so much.
The 13-year-old pitcher has already pitched a no-hitter at the Little League World Series this year, appeared on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” and even had a chat with Jimmy Fallon. And Spike Lee profiled her in a documentary. Of course the cherry on top had to be when she got to pitch for the pros at a World Series game.
By all accounts, Mo’ne is an extraordinary young lady, but she told Teen Vogue that she’s a lot like any other girl her age. She works hard to maintain her position on the honor roll, balancing her academics with her athletics. The world may know her for her killer fastball, but Mo’ne also plays football and basketball!
When she’s not wrapped up in school or sports, she enjoys listening to Beyonce and Ariana Grande. She also makes time to chow down and cut up with her friends as often as possible.
“Seeing my pitching, you’d think I’m a really serious person–but I’m actually kind of goofy,” said Mo’ne. “I like to laugh!”
Who would begrudge her a little fun? Mo’ne needs to be able to decompres because she undestands that she’s become a role model. “It’s a big responsibility knowing that other kids are watching what I do. But if I can inspire girls to reach their goals, then I’m happy.”
