    Hi, I’m from the UK and have been following your movement for about 2 years now. I am absolutely all for it and would love to get involved somehow, but not sure how. Being in the UK some of the donation options aren’t available for me, but also I would like to do something a bit more than just donating money, if there is any way that I could get involved from the other side of the world, please let me know! I’m sure a lot of other UK girls would love to get involved too!

    Hello my name is Jocelyn Cooke. I am looking to start a group for girls ages 13 to 18. I would love to create a place for girls to come and talk , work on self esteem , I want to create a one stop shop. My vision is to hold monthly workshops or " Girls Talk" sessions that is facilitated by myself and other local women in the community to offer up their experiences and knowledge on life. I see so many girls in my community with such low self esteem . I would love to get more information from your organization on where can I start. I am a 48 year old women who have raised two lovely ladies. I just want to give back. there is such a need for our young ladies growing up in this day and age.

    We are launching a new kind of social movement that is not based on protest or injustice, though these are justified.

    Instead, it is based on work to honor the real story\ies and legacy of Rosie the Riveters, centered on action that pulls people together. We started in rural regions to be sure all are included, and now we will be working in major cities. We want to talk with you about including girls and young women. www.rosietherivetermovement.org

    Hello, I am a big fan of President Trump. Will I be welcome here? I find my “friends” to be hateful, judgy, and not inclusive if I don’t pretend to agree with their political beliefs.

    Hi! My name is Kathryn Jackson. I am a co-leader with Chieko Zimmerman in Emporia, KS, and I am unsure if I am on the same page with her on this website, as in being able to view the curriculum or events that are going on. Thanks so much!

    I would really like to use some of these resources with the girls at my school in London! They are 10-11 years old which is below what you recommend but I was hoping they might still be able to join in with a mentor. Is that okay?

    Hi! I’m Jillian Bradfield, children’s book author from Atlanta, GA. I recently published a journal titled Write On Girl!:A guided journal for preteen girls, currently available on Amazon. Write On Girl! is a year long guided journal designed to engage, encourage, and motivate preteen girls to make smart decisions and express themselves through journaling. My journal includes guided writing prompts, coloring pages, and interesting topics aimed at 12 to 16 year old girls. The goal of the journal is to get girls to express themselves by writing.


    I’d love the opportunity to partner with your organization to see how we could connect to help the young girls that you work with.

    I was in foster care.

    MOST OF THE HOMES I WAS PLACED IN WAS A HORRIFIC PLACE TO BE WHERE I SUSTAINED MENTAL, EMOTIONAL & SEXUAL ABUSE. I REACHED OUT TO MY SO-CALLED CASE WORKER SHE JUST BRUSHED IT OFF, SAYING HER CASELOAD WAS OVERWHELMING. WHEN THEY PLACED ME IN OTHER HOMES I WOULD RUNAWAY FROM THOSE HOMES IN FEAR OF WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ME IF I REMAINED THERE. INSTEAD OF HELPING ME HRS/DCF LABELED ME A CHRONIC RUNAWAY AND PROBLEM CHILD. I BECAME PREGNANT WITH MY FIRST CHILD IN 1992 HRS/DCF ILLEGALLY TOOK CUSTODY OF MY BABY AND NOW DEEMED ME AN UNFIT MOTHER DUE TO ALL MY RUNAWAYS FROM ABUSE. AFTERWARDS, I HAD THREE MORE CHILDREN THOSE CHILDREN WERE REMOVED FROM ME AS WELL, FROM THE HOSPITAL AT BIRTH I WAS NEVER ALLOWED TO TAKE ANY OF MY BABIES HOME. THE JUDGE, KATHLEEN KEARNEY WAS STEPPING DOWN FOR ANOTHER POSITION, SHE MANIPULATED ME INTO SURRENDERING MY RIGHTS TO THREE OF MY CHILDREN WITH THE PROMISE OF THE RETURN OF THE YOUNGEST CHILD THEY HAD RECENTLY TOOK INTO CUSTODY. I PLEADED AND BEGGED KATHLEEN KEARNEY FOR THE RETURN OF ALL MY CHILDREN, SHE TOOK ME INTO HER CHAMBERS AND TOLD ME IF I DID NOT SIGN OVER MY PARENTAL RIGHTS WE WOULD GO TO TRIAL SHES THE  THE JUDGE AND SHE WOULD FIND ME GUILTY AND KEEP ALL MY CHILDREN. I WAS YOUNG AND SCARED WITH NO ONE TO TURN TO I TOOK THE DEAL. I SURRENDERED MY RIGHTS TO MY THREE CHILDREN AND THE YOUNGEST BABY WAS RETURNED TO ME AS PROMISED. THIS SITUATION HAS RUINED MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!! I WILL NEVER RECOVER FROM THIS HEINOUS CRIME. HRS/DCF MADE UP ALL TYPES OF STORIES AND KEPT ME FROM MY CHILDREN. HRS/DCF BARELY EVER LET ME VISIT MY KIDS. MY BABIES DIDNT KNOW ME AS THEIR MOTHER. IN 2012 ONE OF MY CHILDREN THAT WAS REMOVED FROM ME DECIDED TO SEARCH FOR ME. SHE DID NOT EVEN KNOW ME OR THE TYPE OF PERSON I COULD HAVE BEEN SHE JUST TOOK A LEAP OF FAITH TO FIND HER NATURAL MOTHER. MY YOUNG DAUGHTER AT THE AGE OF 16 ALONG WITH HER SIBLINGS WOULD EXPLAIN TO DCF THE ABUSE THEY WERE SUSTAINING AND JUST AS HRS/DCF HAD DONE TO ME DCF DID NOTHING TO HELP MY CHILDREN. MY DAUGHTER TOOK A CHANCE TO FIND ME, WITH THE HOPES AS THEIR NATURAL MOTHER I COULD SAVE THEM FROM ALL THE ABUSE THEY WERE GOING THROUGH IN FOSTERCARE. GOD LEAD MY DAUGHTER RIGHT TO ME. I WAS NOW REUNITED WITH MY FIRST THREE CHILDREN. I CURRENTLY HAVE 3 ADDITIONAL CHILDREN. UNFORTUNATELY, THROUGH NO FAULT OF MY OWN I HAVE A NEW CASE OPENED WITH DCF. THEY ARE THREATENING TO TAKE MY CURRENT THREE CHILDREN AWAY BASED ON THE FACT THAT I WAS NEVER REUNIFIED WITH THE PREVIOUS CHILDREN THAT WAS ILLEGALLY TAKEN FROM ME IN THE FIRST PLACE, THAT CANNOT BE LEGAL. I HAVE CONSULTED WITH SEVERAL ATTORNEY’S THAT ARE ASKING ME FOR $5,000 TO $10,000 RETAINERS TO LOOK INTO MY CASE. I DO NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY. I DO NOT WANT MY CURRENT CHILDREN IN THE HANDS OF DCF!! I WANT MY CHILDREN TO BE SAFE. DCF DOSENT PROTECT CHILDREN. SOMEONE, PLEASE HELP MY CHILDREN AND I STAY TOGETHER PLEASE. THIS CAN NOT BE LEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WHERE THEY CLAIM JUSTICE FOR ALL.

    FINANCIAL HELP IS NOT WHAT IM LOOKING FOR. I NEED THE WORLD TO KNOW THIS HAPPENS AND IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. THANK YOU.

    Dear Alexis,


    I am writing to you for a few reasons. Firstly, I believe that your mission is incredible. Young women need SO much more support from our culture and community than they currently receive. I am a BIG fan of your work! Thank you. Thank you for taking a stand for younger women who may not yet have cultivated their authentic voice but want to…


    Secondly, I know that you are very busy. I am wondering if you may have 35 minutes to do a video interview with me. I am an empowerment coach and spiritual counselor. I have worked for years with teenagers, and currently I work in groups or 1 on 1 mostly with women. I am going to launch my first free online interview series called, “The Millennial Entrepreneur: How to Clarify Your Dream, Unleash Your Full Potential, And Make Money While Living Your Purpose.” I am sure you can speak directly to millennials on this topic! You would be a perfect fit!


    As you know, part of the purpose for these interviews is to grow our exposure. I will be interviewing at least 21 experts/influencers and they will all be sharing this interview with their list of a minimum of 5000. This means we will reach a minimum of 100,000 people.


    My promotional window is January 29th- February 12th, 2018. What do you think? Would you be willing to help out a new entrepreneur like me?


    I look forward to hearing from you,


    Christina Miglino

    Hello!

    I love your mission and purpose. I host workshops for girls on self-worth and I would love to join forces in helping girls recognize their worth and the power of influence they have on each other. I would love to talk to you about what this could look like.

    I just turned 25 and started questioning who I am and what I am doing in my life. I have never been the type of person who has felt beautiful or strong, but have always felt I have had a purpose to make everyone around me rise to be their best self without focusing on my own happiness. I had a friend recently let me borrow this book because she felt I needed it. After reading the first paragraph in the introduction I started to cry my eyes out, and kept crying as I was reading because I felt that those words were meant for me. In a way I felt I was being seen, heard and valued from someone I have never met and wanted to say thank you. Thank you for putting this book out into the world to make young women and men who need that little bit of encouragement to help find their passion. Thank you for the reminder that I am more, and that my purpose is also more. And most of all, thank you for reminding me I am not alone in this journey.


    Warmly,

    Katherine

    I am a teacher at a career and technology high school in Huntington, WV. This year I will have a group of girls for an advisor/advisee group that will meet once per week. At our school, my girls face exceptional challenges. Most are in non-traditional programs like welding or carpentry and many are the only girl in their CTE class. The majority are also from high-poverty backgrounds and several have been considered at-risk students at point. I would like to incorporate the I Am That Girl program into our weekly meetings but I’m not sure where to start. I’ve read that your local chapters are started by the girls themselves but I would like to have something in place before our first meeting on August 23rd. Any suggestions?

    To Whom it May Concern,


    My name is Robin MacKellar, I’m a 20 year-old college student, preparing to enter my Junior year. I feel as though I have learned a lot during my 20 years alive, and I want to start giving back. Back in November of 2016, the day after the Election I was angry, upset, and driven. I felt as though the country elected a leader that wasn’t going to empower or influence the young women coming of age during an interesting and uncertain time of America’s history. I know for me, when I felt most empowered and unstoppable was after attending a leadership conference. Hence, what I am wanting to do now, which is organize a young women’s conference for early 2018 (preferably around International Women’s Day- March 8th). I want to provide speakers, poetry, music, workshops, and fun, through an one day conference targeted towards young women in high school and older. This conference would ideally be for anyone who has been or is a young women (including college women, moms, aunts, grandmothers, friends, etc.) and wants to participate in a community of empowerment and leadership. But I need some help to make this become a reality, whether it’s sponsorship, participation, or any advice. I want to make an impact and I believe you could help.


    All the best,

    Robin MacKellar

    Hello Emily Greener and team!

    I have been completely blown away and inspired by your mission at I AM THAT GIRL. How amazing are all of you for following your passion and helping to lead girls towards their dreams in life?! I have been looking to get involved in an organization like this for quite some time.


    A little bit more about me. I am a woman in my early 30’s who has been supporting her husband through PA school and his whole trek leading to starting his program all through my 20’s. No fault but really my own, I put my own passions and dreams on the back burner. I earned a B.S.Ed in Special Education and Communication Disorders back in 2010 but never continued on to earn my masters in Speech , Language and Hearing Pathology. I was never sure what direction to take in my career path and so I became a career nanny in the Boston area. While , I am looking forward to starting my master’s program in a year or so, there has been an undeniable pull at my heart to help young woman in finding their careers paths and dreams. I can’t really explain it but about 5 years ago, I felt like something was calling me to start or be a part of an organization that aims to motivate girls to pursue their passions. Something that I honestly didn’t have growing up in a broken family. My dad left when I was very young and my mother was busy working trying to take care of me and all of my siblings. Sure, I was part of some thing, chorus and an animal rights group…but no one was motivating me in my dreams or helping me gain footing in life. I spent most of my 20’s trying to fit in a be cool , instead of trying to grow and connect with positive people. I don’t want this to happen to other girls. I want young women to feel inspired and to feel like the world cares about them. I want to be a part of that mission but I don’t have any clue where to begin. I guess I am writing all of this , hoping that you might be able to shine some light on the answer. Hopefully I can help you but my heart is open to any opportunity.


    Anyways, thank you so much for your time and thank you for reading a little bit about my story. Good luck to all of you at IATG. Look forward to seeing what else you amazing women do this year!


    Best,

    Hi! My name is Elizabeth Celentano and I am in eighth grade at Elko Middle School, which is located in Richmond, Virginia. This year has been pretty rough for me, and my mom thought it would help if I looked at your website. Immediately, I took the I Am That Girl pledge. I love your enthusiasm and the self-confidence and respect you promote. Thank you for being such a thoughtful and empowering organization!

    Currently, I am working on a project for my gifted class. We have to choose a topic, research it, and create a TED talk to explain our findings and any meaningful message we wish to convey to an audience. My topic is how emotional intelligence, and the lack thereof, is affecting young adults in our society. I am trying to explain how emotional intelligence and the awareness of one’s intuition and feelings should be healthily explored and understood, especially by growing and maturing adolescents. I was hoping that I would be able to use I Am That Girl and I Am That Boy as places for emotional intelligence to be discussed. It would amazing if I could use your organizations as a realistic solution to the problem I am attempting to confront and fix. I just wanted to get your approval before I do anything, as this project means more to me than just a grade.

    Again, thanks for all you do!


    Sincerely, Elizabeth Celentano

    Hi! My name is Beth and I heard about your organization on Facebook. I live in San Diego and am planning a trip with my niece to Alaska for her high school graduation present. We will be driving there and back. I know this a once in a lifetime adventure and I would love to use this experience to raise awareness and funds for a good cause. If this month long journey could spark courage and inspiration in one person, I would be thrilled. Sharing this trip would make it even more special. Please let me know how I can help.

    Honestly I’m not quite sure what it is that I’m seeking, except maybe for the opportunity to tell you how much you’ve changed my life. I’m 34 and therefore do not fall into the “chapter” or “sponsor” demographic, but I would absolutely love to be involved in any way possible. I recently took the pledge and have been brainstorming wildly about any way I can actively contribute. Reading this book and seeing firsthand what this organization is all about has stirred up a fire in me I believe has always been there, but I am only now able to recognize. I have always hated bullying and peer pressure (yet I have lived much of my life succumbing to it and trying desperately to fit in), and have recently began to focus more on self love and empowering others. Nothing has ever made me feel more fulfilled. EVER. Even if all I do is spread the word (which I’m happy to do!) I will feel good in my soul, knowing that what I’m doing matters. But if there is more that I can do, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d very much like to take on a more active role participating in this movement. Thank you for all you are doing, and keep up the amazing work!
