I support I AM THAT GIRL because I was raised by a woman who was raised by a woman who was raised by a woman that embodied the idea of girl power. When I began my journey with I AM THAT GIRL I wanted to be a front runner in changing girl culture so that my niece, little sisters and little cousins can grow up in a world where girls compliment each other on the street for their smile instead of looking away at one another. Once I became more connected and involved I felt as if I had met my soul mates, and they were all tucked away in tiny nooks and crannies of the world that I could have never imagined. The IATG community has allowed me to show the pieces of myself that are still a work in progress, while celebrating the pieces of me that are more concrete. I have learned to celebrate my victories and honor my vulnerabilities. The year is 2015 and we are more connected than ever and more disconnected from ourselves than ever. It is time to change that and I AM THAT GIRL is taking the lead. It is time to plug in to ourselves. It is time to power up ourselves!
