US Women's star Hope Solo becomes an American 'Maker'

USA Women's national team goalkeeper Hope Solo will go under the spotlight in a documentary produced by PBS and AOL.

The 31-year old Seattle Reign star is one of many influential women who have been targeted to construct the 'Makers: Women Who Make America' program and she has a very strong message throughout - be true to yourself.

"With each year that's gone by and as I grow up and get older, I've become more mature, of course but you have a sense of who you are, and you find confidence in that," Solo says in her interview which helps makes up the documentary.

"There are so many different walks of life, so many different personalities in the world. And no longer do you have to be a chameleon and try and adapt to that environment; you can truly be yourself. And if people don't like who you are, well then, it's their loss."

Solo will be joined by the likes of Hillary Clinton, Condoleeza Rice, Ellen DeGeneres, Martha Stewart and Madeleine Albright on the documentary.
