This 7-Year-Old Soccer Star Had An Emotional Breakdown On “The Steve Harvey Show”

“I kick their butts a lot. They cry after the game.”

Seven-year-old soccer star Ariana dos Santos was recently featured in NBC’s “Little Big Shots” and she didn’t hold back when it came time to show off her smooth soccer skills. The show, hosted by Steve Harvey, highlights talented children across the United States. As she showcased her skills, dos Santos even scored a couple of goals, back to back, against Harvey.

Shortly after being featured in “Little Big Shots,” this Brazilian-American futbolista then appeared as a guest on “The Steve Harvey Show.” As you can see from the interview video above, dos Santos has a huge level of confidence to be reckoned with (as should every girl). You see this confidence shine in the responses she gives Harvey when asked if she plays soccer with boys.

“I kick their butts a lot. They cry after the game. They just got beat by a girl,” dos Santos said.

Dos Santos has been playing soccer her entire childhood with the help of her father who is her personal coach and mentor. She’s only gotten better and better at it as the years go by. One of her soccer moves in particular is named after her favorite soccer player Neymar Jr. To dos Santos’ surprise, Harvey had a special recorded message for dos Santos, directly from Neymar Jr. himself. As soon as dos Santos heard Neymar Jr. say “Hey Ariana” in the first few seconds of the video, she burst into tears. Dos Santos was emotional throughout the entire video recorded by the Brazilian futbol star.

To heighten her emotions even more, Harvey then presented dos Santos a soccer jersey autographed by Neymar Jr. himself. More uncontrollable tears of joy came down dos Santos’ face.

Looks like having insane soccer skills at only seven years old definitely pays off. Keep up the amazing work, Ariana! ⚽️

Queer Chicana Photographer Laura Aguilar Passes Away At 58

For Laura Aguilar, photography was more than just a way to express herself but an outlet for the world to see another side of being Chicana. Whether it was capturing her Mexican-American heritage or her identity as a lesbian, Aguilar was a trailblazer whose impact touched many in the queer Latino community. The 58-year-old Los Angeles photographer died on Wednesday morning due to end-stage renal failure, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“Laura’s passing is a profound loss,” said Chon Noriega, director of the Chicano Studies Research Center, according to LA Times. “She had an ability to cut through the biases and habits of thought that makes us see a smaller world than actually exists. And she did it as an expression of the stunning beauty of the human body, including her own.”

Her photography chronicled the lives and identities of marginalized people of color including herself.

Aguilar’s images were featured in exhibitions across the country including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Hammer Museum, Artpace in San Antonio and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.

Her work was trailblazing for many in the queer community because of the raw and powerful subjects depicted.

“Laura’s work a lot of time represents people that are marginalized and people that are oppressed or people that are invisible,” Sybil Venegas, a curator for Aguilar’s past exhibits, told LA Weekly. “Poor, large women of color — they tend to be invisible in society. Nobody sees them. They’re not represented in media.”

Fans of her work have taken to social media to honor her work and influence on their lives.

Some of her fans saw themselves in her work and could relate to many of the subjects depicted in her various work.

Laura Aguilar’s legacy will live on forever with her photographs and fans that she impacted with her work.

Just this past year her work was part of the Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA series whose theme was highlighting Latino work in Los Angeles. “Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell” at the Vincent Price Art Museum on the campus of East Los Angeles College, and her photography appeared last year in the two-part exhibition “Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A.”
