I Am That Girl Brings Shift in Girl Culture
We all have a young woman in our life that, with a nudge here and a little love and support there, can realize their potential. Once realized, what better way to connect with like-minded girls than a community that supports female confidence, honesty, and compassion for themselves and one another? I Am That Girl is a community that promotes a safe space for young women to be the best version of themselves. 150,000 girls in 8 countries have been inspired by their message of love, support, and truth.
According to their website, this is their vision: “In an epidemic of negativity, I AM THAT GIRL is helping girls transform self-doubt in to self-love by providing a safe space to connect and have honest conversations about things that matter.”
The site continues on to explain their impact: “We’ve connected hundreds of thousands of girls from all over the world from across the globe to love and express themselves through online and offline programs and initiatives.”
And lastly, the site explains their work: “Through local chapters and an online community, healthy media interactions and “education that teach girls emotional intelligence, professional skills, and personal growth.”
Many young women spend time online and in social media spaces already, and I Am That Girl caters to this by providing an online connection to the community, along with encouraging in-person interactions through local chapters. There are two ways to connect with the community by joining one of 70+ local chapters or sponsoring a girl to participate in this positive haven.
