 G.I.R.L. Power has taught me so much from my ability to understand womanhood to loving myself completely. My mentor Quetta, still helps me with the struggles of life as a woman today, and I can admit that I’ve never would’ve been so open-minded to learning from someone else without G.I.R.L. Power showing me that I’m not alone and there’s other girls just like me who needs guidance into womanhood and help with like in general. I’m grateful for the everything the G.I.R.L. Power experience has taught me.💗

I've been in G.I.R.L. Power since 2018 and I love that I can be myself and talk to older women without judgement. I also love getting to know other people my age. I've known Dr. Barden since I was in the 5th grade and I am now in the 12th grade. She has played a major part in my life, she is an amazing woman, she loves to help others and see people win and achieve their goals. She is one of the greatest and only mentors that I’ll ever want.
