BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - You're a nobody until you become a somebody.

Two years ago, Angela Lutin realized she is a somebody, but why wait 35 years to make that discovery? "Where I grew up, it was really that you grew up and get married and you support your family which is all fine and good, but you also can't lose yourself in the process," said Lutin.

Known as evANGELAisms, Lutin explains in her book the 42 principals she lives her life by. "'Play Big' is a culmination of my motivational speaking that I do with different teen girls and women, so I decided to write a book," she explained. "My blog was very popular, and it talked about different things I do in my life and how it motivates other people."

Taking advantage of being the director of Flywheel Sports Florida and the date 11-11-11, Angela invited teenaged girls to partake in a 'Dream Ride'. "I'll do a ride at Flywheel Sports with them, and then we're going to do Dream Board work afterwards. So we're going to sit around and really write out their vision plan for the next year and hope to inspire them in their goals and what they have for the future."

I sat down with a group of high school freshman after the ride to see what would be on their Dream Boards.

"My dreams are just to have a happy life and be successful and have a great family and friends," said one.

"I think it would be to make the biggest change for the biggest amount of people," another added.

It's no secret, being a teenaged girl -- especially in South Florida -- has its challenges. Now, thanks to Lutin, many are receiving the encouragement they need to 'Play Big'. "I speak with them with my heart, and I teach them it's what's on the inside not the outside that counts," Lutin said.
