What Makes Us

ESPNW Series

Rena Mundo Croshere and Nadine Mundo, a sibling director team known as the Mundo Sisters, created and directed WHAT MAKES US, a new series of short films on elite female athletes for ESPNW.

Nadine Mundo will be on hand to talk about the making of the films, working with star athletes and to answer questions from the audience.


For most of her life, Carissa Moore has been on a path to becoming the world's top female surfer. But after her first world title -- at age 18 -- she faced unexpected criticism, not of her surfing, but of her body. In Riss, Moore describes her journey to victory, and how she overcame the self-doubt and body issues that threatened her dreams.


When Olympic medalist Hilary Knight was five, she told her grandmother she was going to be in the Olympics for hockey. Her grandmother’s response was, “Girls don’t play hockey.” Knight went on to become the youngest member of the U.S. Olympic Women’s Hockey team and is considered one of the greatest female ice hockey players in the world.  In Knighter, she describes the obstacles she overcame, how the Gold Medal Game in Sochi changed the public’s view of women’s ice hockey, and her quest to help young girls feel confident to play the sport they love.


In this espnW Originals film, Spain's Verónica "Vero" Boquete talks about her struggle growing up in a country that didn't accept women's soccer and her rise to become an international sensation.
