Throughout my career, I’ve worked with women and girls across America to strengthen their self-confidence, I’ve had the honor of being employed as the first Life Coach to work at an HBCU (historically black college University), I’ve chaired county and city boards, I served as a Commissioner on the status of women and girls and the list goes on… No matter what I’ve accomplished or where I’ve traveled or whom I speak with, the core issue is the same. Girls need inspiration! Girls are conflicted about their value in this world. When girls are conflicted and feel bad about themselves, they disconnect from life. They avoid activities like going to school, social functions and often times, giving their opinion!
Everyone has the opportunity to be an inspiration. Everyone can make a difference in someone’s life, even if it’s telling your own story. You have the ability to make a difference in a girl’s self- esteem and the way she views her future so she’s able to imagine her potential.
Here’s my invitation to you: Develop that relationship with that special girl in your life, commit to inspiring girls with your kind words every chance you get. You don’t have to have all the right words or fancy phrases, you just have to be you and be genuine. Trust me, she will notice. There is no more important, more significant time than now to INSPIRE the girl in your life, right now! Living in Okinawa can be filled with its own anxieties, especially being away from loved ones and friends that made her feel special.
I created a movement that I hope you join! The Inspire a Girl Movement, in an effort to inspire every girl around the world to imagine her potential! Check it out!
