(Scroll down for video) A team of women formed a company dedicated to skydiving in nothing but underwear, according to reports.
Jennifer Hoffman and Marisa Gallegos are the founders of Esme and Eve Photography in Los Angeles. They will both be on a public display while skydiving in nothing but their underwear.
On November 17, Hoffman and Gallegos, along with five other brave women, plan to jump from an airplane near Lake Elsinore, California, wearing nothing but their underwear and parachutes.
The jump is part of Esme and Eve’s “Be Bold. Take the leap” initiative, which urge women “to face their fears, take a risk and push against all that is preventing them from carrying out their dreams.”
Each of the women participating in the jump has been through something traumatic, like a death in the family, coping with being a rape victim, or overcoming an eating disorder. They come together to find ways to put this difficult time behind them.
“All these women have terrible stories,” Hoffman said. “I get very motivated by these women. We follow all their tragedies of their lives, but we do not follow their success. So we want to highlight their triumphs.
We wanted to ensure that women had different stories that people can resonate with. We know how much a person can change another person’s life, and we are trying to do that at a lower level.
We do not expect any massive change happening outside of this, but we would love this to have a domino effect.”
