I am g.i.r.l, which is an acronym for goal-oriented, imaginative, resilient, leader, was created to help fill that void. "I want girls to be comfortable and confident in their own skin and inspire others to do the same. We all have something special that makes us who we are and when you discover that, something magical happens! I want all girls to experience life's beauty and gift the world with all they have to offer. I see the potential of I AM G.I.R.L and the impact it will make along the way. And that excites me!"
