​About the Founder and Movement

The Empowered Girl Movement was started by Maria Fuller, a mother to two girls in Connecticut USA. Maria has spent a decade working with women and girls to help them shed unhealthy beliefs and breakdown stereotypes surrounding motherhood, body image, self esteem, anxiety, depression, brain health, parenting, women's leadership and more. 

​Maria believes that the change we need to see in this world begins with equipping girls with the tools they need to navigate this journey called life. With a rising rate of anxiety and depression in girls, she understands through her research and her own experience that teaching personal development skills at an early age is a great first step towards empowering girls. 

​Maria believes that all girls should understand and have healthy self-care practices in place for taking care of not only their bodies but their minds and spirit as well. She believes in the power of cultivating everyday gratitude and affirmation practices for boosting self-esteem and confidence as well as teaching mindfulness and mindset skills which are critical in today's fast-paced world as a must-have tool in developing leadership.

Maria also believes in the importance and power of storytelling, vulnerability, and truth when speaking and how it can help break down barriers and walls that cause others to feel isolation which is one of the largest contributing factors to mental health issues today

​The Empowered Girl Movement aims to give girls the tools they need to become the leaders they are destined to become and to experience the power of women supporting women through our Empowered Girl Experience Sessions. Our Programs have Female Ambassadors and Facilitators who have been hand-selected and trained in our methods doing this Empowering Work in their communities!
