What do you think a 9 year old girl would want to do when she grows up? Stereotypes tell us she would want to be a ballerina or maybe a veterinarian. But things are changing for the best. Stereotypes are changing, and Jesse Jane McParland is most definitely NOT your stereotypical 9 year old girl. When Jesse was very young, her parents wanted her to take classes like many young girls do. They tried taking her to ballet classes but, right away she was having none of it, she hated it.
