    I was wondering how to start a chapter
  • commented 2017-11-17 06:00:04 -0800
    My daughter is 10 and this is amazing. Any way a local chapter could be started for younger girls? Social dilemmas are starting younger in life. Please let me know.

    I try to send feedback but it just keeps saying"Saving". (Maybe my feedback is too long.)

    Also, I tried to activate my account a few times but I don’t get an email.

    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

    Hello…I live in Greenwich, CT and would love to support this. But I would also love to learn more, but your website streamlines people into submissions. How can I help? May I speak with someone? Thank you.

    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

    The aritst I represent, Dotti J, is getting ready to release her single THAT GIRL feat. Ti Vedette. She is also working on a campaign, BE YOU BE PROUD. We were lead to your organization by a friend. I am sure she would love to be a part of this movement.

    Why are grown women calling themselves girls? If you are over 17 years old, you are a woman. Stop demeaning and minimizing yourselves

    Hey there

    I am 25 but have just realised this is for up to 22 year olds.

    Is there a site like this for people older? Well my age at least.

    Thank you.

    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!

    I absolutely love your “I Am That Girl” mission and organization. I had the privilege and opportunity to meet one of your team members on a plane flying back from Texas last month. I was very impressed and amazed at what you ladies are doing for other females/women. It is really game changing and making a real difference it seems in others’ lives.

    Hello,

    I am a 28-year-old woman in NYC. I want to start volunteering for a charity that helps young teen girls learn how to love and be there for themselves. I read Alexis’ book a couple years ago, and then stumbled upon this website just now while looking for opportunities… Wondering if I can volunteer for you all?

    Much love,

    I am contacting you about providing a speaker for a convention in April of 2017. I am a District Director for a local region of Soroptimist International of the Americas. Soroptimist Internationl is a global volunteers organization that is focused on improving the lives of women and girls through access to education. in 2014 we launched a new program called Dream It, Be It for girls ages 14-18 to help them expand their dreams for the future , with action plans, tools and interaction with professional role models.


    I attended the USC Women’s Conference last year and heard Alexis Jones present the story of I Am That Girl. I have also read her book and see a lot of common themes between our two organizations. We are interested in having a speaker join us talk about your work. Our convention is a regional gathering of 23 clubs from all over southern California. I would be happy to call and talk with you in further detail about our group and this request.

    I am not sure who to contact as I’m a school counselor getting ready to launch this year’s 5th grade I AM THAT GIRL group and I was hoping to have someone Skype in to welcome them like you did last year. I’ve sent emails and called the contact numbers I have from last year but am not hearing back so I’m thinking new people have taken those positions. Please let me know who I can contact? Our launch meeting is Monday, November 7th and I’ve been searching for over a month for someone to connect with. My phone is: 425-837-5048 and my email is silversk@issaquah.wednet.edu


    Thank you,

    Hi I AM THAT GIRL … I think this is an AMAZING organization. I’m currently looking for a charity to connect to a project I’m working on and I’d like it to me yours. In short, I’m collecting videos of females doing pull-ups as a rebuttal to an article published in the NY Times Magazine and on their blog called “Why Women Can’t Do Pull-ups.” The goal is 1,000+ videos, $10,000 in donations (which I’d like to send to you) and some action from the Times in the form of a retraction of that article or another piece that would empower women rather than tear them down.


    I’ve begun setting up a website and Instagram so that I can start collecting the videos. I’m a fitness professional working in NYC and I have a very large network of strong women. I really want to turn this negative article into something positive. Can I include a link to your site on my website? I would like to discuss further and be sure to take all the appropriate steps to collect the donations.


    Please feel free to reach out to schedule a time to speak over the phone or we can correspond via email.
