Congrats to these amazing girls for exhibiting our LiveGirl values and reaching the TOP of our leadership summit!
Congrats to Emma and Emily for reaching the TOP of our February leadership summit! They embody our LiveGirl values and serve as positive role models for others. Here's what they have learned from LiveGirl:
Emma: LiveGirl has provided me with the opportunity to connect with girls and women from around Fairfield County, gaining a multitude of different perspectives and forming meaningful relationships with those I meet. It has taught me to be self confident, and that any job a man can do, a woman can do also. It has taught me how to be an entrepreneur, the starting steps to be a writer, a poet, a lawyer. It has taught me that women can have the same level of impact on society that men can have, even though sometimes we don't get recognized for it. But mostly, it has taught me that I am smart, I am strong, and I am special.
Emily: LiveGirl has boosted my self-confidence. I've learned how to speak up and advocate for myself. I've learned that girls can be powerful leaders. And I've learned that I am smart, I am strong, and I am special!
Autumn: "I am smart, strong, and special because I work really hard to get good grades and excel in gymnastics. LiveGirl has introduced me to a lot of inspiring role models and taught me to be true to myself. Because of LiveGirl, I have more self-confidence and I don’t listen to the negative things that people say about me!”
CONGRATS to these amazing girls for exhibiting our LiveGirl values and reaching the TOP of our November leadership summit! Read what they wrote and I know you'll agree that these girls are truly SMART, STRONG, AND SPECIAL and role models for LiveGirls everywhere!
Shelomi: "I am Smart, Strong, and Special because I have a healthy attitude towards trying new activities. Being a LiveGirl has taught me to respect and love myself."
Ameera: "I am smart, strong, and special because I am confident in myself, I persevere through tough times, and I'm not afraid to speak my mind. Being a LiveGirl has taught me to try new things, be more open-minded, advocate for myself and others, and how to be a leader. I've learned more about myself and I've met some awesome girls in this program. The amazing speakers and role models have taught me important life lessons, from staying fit/healthy to loving myself and having self-esteem. I love being a LiveGirl and can't wait for camp next summer."
Evania: "I am Smart, Strong, and Special because I believe in myself and work hard to achieve exceptional grades in school. Being a LiveGirl has taught me to embrace my body image, no matter what other people see or say!"

Ahhsha: "I am smart, strong, and special because when I see someone who is alone and they look like they need a friend, I introduce myself. Being a LiveGirl has taught me that I am unstoppable, that I can be a leader and make positive change, and that we are all smart, strong, and special in our own ways. LiveGirl is like family!"
Mateja: “I am smart, strong, and special because I am an athlete, fun, cool, and unique. LiveGirl has taught me that girls can do anything that boys can do! LiveGirl has also taught me that you don't have to change for anybody and to always be yourself."
Abby: "I am smart, strong, and special because I love to help people thrive and succeed in their lives. I love when people smile and I like to be a positive part of other people's day. Being a LiveGirl has taught me to embrace my differences because they are what make me—“ME”. I have been inspired by LiveGirl - seeing what women have done to change the world, and now I know that I can do this some day too! To use who I AM to make change. I am so grateful to be a LiveGirl.
