I am THAT GIRL because every day I focus on being the most authentic version of myself. It means that I own every action and learn to love myself for all my flaws and strengths. I am THAT GIRL, merely because I AM ME.
I was the girl who was taught to "throw some dirt on it." I was taught to keep things to myself and always be there for others. However, through IATG I learned how to open up, own my story, to go first, and that the power of the two words, "me too," is an indescribable feeling I will always cherish. I decided to start a chapter my senior year because I needed it, my best friend lead it with me because she needed it, and girls joined because they needed it; self-love has never looked more beautiful than that.
