“Insecurity and self-doubt are usually the biggest obstacles in the way of anybody’s talents and dreams, and society needs us girls to do the things that it tells us we can’t. We can help each other to build inner voices louder than any of society’s contradictory messages”. – Tessa, 23

“I believe girls can overcome all obstacles.” – Kymber, 17

“Today’s society has expectations that differ from previous generations’ expectations, and they are not only affecting me, an 18 year old female, but they are preying on an innocent seen year old girl and her self esteem.” Winter, 18

“I believe when women rise fully to their own occasions, they deepen their capacity to create extraordinary lives, careers, communities and organizations.” Jami Young
