    Hello,


    I wanted to take the time to introduce myself. My name is Ariana Gaitan and I am reaching out on behalf of my client, A-lan Holt.


    A-lan is a writer, filmmaker, educator, Sundance fellow and top of this all she’s a mom. A-lan wrote and directed the short film, Inamorata, that was released through Issa Rae’s production and has amassed over 20,000 views in it’s short run time. Along with writing and directing Inamorata, A-lan is making massive strides at Standford working as associate director of Institute for Diversity in the Arts. A-lan will be spearheading a major project at Stanford, helping showcase sexual assault survivors.


    We think A-lan is such a dynamic woman and is making such impressive strides. We would love the opportunity to discuss having A-lan featured & to help bring more attention to these important projects. I am always available for a call to discuss further. I can be reached at 310.357.9096


    Lovingly,

    A

    Hi!

    I am very impressed by I Am That Girl’s mission. I am an international TV journalist. I hosted my first show and had my first article byline when I was 16. I have volunteered for the American Red Cross for over a decade, founding clubs in high school and at Johns Hopkins University, serving as one of 8 regional ambassadors and then becoming a member of the National Youth Council. I am that girl! I have worked at the Smithsonian Institute, National Geographic Traveler, and ABC News. I became the first female TV Correspondent for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and tv channels in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East reporting from the United Nations, the White House, and the 57th floor of the Empire State Building. I wrote and sold an action adventure movie to Nickelodeon. I know what its like to be an imaginative, enthusiastic, and resourceful girl and constantly have your dreams and vision be put down. I want girls to feel like they are the stars of their own stories. And even if they haven’t felt that way so far, that their act 2 is just beginning. Despite the hardships life has thrown in our faces, we are all heroines searching for redemption because those are the underdog stories that keep us inspired and up late rooting for! We cannot read the same page to ourselves every night. It’s up to us to change our narratives from “I could have done this BUT…” to “I did do this DESPITE…” I feel very passionate about this and wrote and performed a piece about my own struggles as a 12 year old girl with scoliosis that I feel could really relate to a lot of issues girls have about self worth and body image. I was wondering if you had a forum I could share it on? I actually live close to your headquarters in Santa Monica and would love to talk more.


    Cheers,

    Shruthi

    I’ve been trying for a week to get in touch with my local chapter leader with no luck. I’ve sent tweets and emails to the local@iamthatgirl.com email with no word back. I’m very interested in helping this organization, would love some feedback!

I’ve been contacting IATG and I never receive messages back. I really need the curriculum to start out my meetings! If anyone knows anything contact my email @ sydneyklaire@gmail.com

    I became interested in IATG from the articles published in INStyle Magazine, by women. I miss them. Has anyone ever considered an I Am That Woman? I am 35 and too old to join the local chapters, but I love the strong message provided through this organization. Even at 35, I am a woman who experiences self-doubt in the corporate world, at home as a mother and wife, and even as sister/daughter on a larger family unit scale. I find myself using my voice more and more, even if that means I am painted in an unfavorable light. With every challenge of speaking your true, thought-out message, you find your integrity. The struggle as a working mid-30’s woman is that the women out there being idolized are either “badass” reality types spouting out Pinterest quotes to seek validation or the older generation of women who believe that as long as they remain silent and appear to have integrity, then they can still be as shady and underhanded as the reality TV loose cannons. I am looking for the group of women in between. The group of women that have self-confidence without the constant need for reassurance or telling other what to do, but still find hesitation for not seeing the integrity in being the silent type. I would be more than happy to help out, whether writing articles, gathering opinions/stories, or anything else. Feel free to reach out if anyone sees any value in this concept. Love

    Hello, I am a Mum to an amazing nearly-10 year old girl and 6 1/2 year old boy. We live in the UK and I work with children as a Relax Kids teacher but also am really interested in finding ways to empower young girls and help them to grow their self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence. I would love to learn about whether you have any chapters in the UK or how I can start something in the UK. Thank you for your help!

    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!

    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

    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
