In celebration of International Women’s Day, Mattel is releasing 17 new “Inspiring Women” Barbie dolls – and Korean-American snowboarder Chloe Kim is one of them!

Chloe joins artist Frida Kahlo, aviator Amelia Earhart, and other notable female pioneers in the 2018 ‘Shero’ series.
Still only 17 years old, Chloe became the youngest woman to win a gold medal in snowboarding at last month’s 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
Chloe’s Barbie is set to drop soon and is predicted to cost $29.99 USD!
Chloe’s not the only one excited about this honor! Her fans are ecstatic about her new Barbie!
Thank you for being such an inspiration to girls everywhere to follow their dreams and ride to new heights! #MoreRoleModels

When I think of Barbie, I think of the cherished doll passed down to me, the collection I amassed on my own and the empowering words in so many of their ads: “We girls can do anything.” So glad they’re celebrating you and other women who prove the words are so true.
