BENEFITING: I AM THAT GIRL
"I AM THAT GIRL" believes in people, in the power of inspiring, protecting, encouraging and challenging women to be the best version of themselves while also celebrating the phenomenal boys and men supporting them.
I AM THAT GIRL is dedicated to building communities and creating positive content for women through local and global programs, online platforms, media, workshops and events. All of which are built on the pillars of: Creation, Collaboration, and Contribution.
They believe that if girls weren’t distracted by unattainable pressures and perfection-driven standards, they would have the freedom to cultivate a voice unique to them, to discover what they are passionate about, dream up creative ways to contribute and be the solutions to so many of our world’s problems. They believe community and healthy media will inspire contribution instead of consumption, collaboration instead of competition and by doing so, a movement of passion-driven, confident girls can and will emerge. They believe that the positive and significant effects that these girls could have on our country have the ability to change.
WHO IS THAT GIRL?
It’s simple, it’s the best version of each of us.
Being THAT GIRL is an identity, a responsibility and an opportunity for us to stand for something bigger than ourselves and remind girls everywhere that we’re on the same team. Being THAT GIRL means that we recognize our worth, that we’re perfectly-flawed and sublimely beauty-full. Every time we look in the mirror, we are reminded that we are the author of our own lives, confident in our own skin, believe in the power of our dreams, feel gorgeous inside and out and can reinvent ourselves into whomever we CHOOSE to be. While we’re certainly out to change the world, we must first start with ourselves… so join themission, rock this world, and be THAT GIRL!
