"When I was a little girl I used to ask a lot of questions. I was curious about the world, I wanted to know things and found joy in learning and being smart. At some point it became "un-cool" to ask questions and I was told "you ask too many questions" and I shut down.
I stopped asking questions and in that moment I turned off my inner guidance system, the light that was within me to help me navigate this journey called life, and this was the begining of my struggled with who I was and where I belonged in the world".
- Maria Fuller (Founder of the Empowered Girl Movement)
The Empowered Girl Experience seeks to remind girls of who they are and the answers they have within. Using a methodology with foundations in the Socratic Method we show girls how they have many answers within themselves and how we believe that they have amazing ideas and insights and can change the world.
they told her she didn't have the right body type we showed her that she is POWERFUL and INCREDIBLE
The Socratic method is a way to seek truths
by your own lights.
Watch this clip where Jillian 15 has a conversation with our Founder Maria and how ONE question changed they way she viewed her own body.
We also show girls how they can be role models for others by overcoming Challenges, Obstacles and pushing against gender stereotypes. Check out this clip with Allie who is 10 years old and is doing just that.
About the Experience
The Empowered Girl Experience Consists of an interview that help girls connect with themselves, inspires them to dream big set goals and find solutions to some of their own challenges or obstacles. We help girls find their strengths and acknowledge their weaknesses and then come up with ideas on how to overcome some of the things that challenge them! We talk about school, family, relationships and the things they are passionate about.
We then move into a photography experience that helps girls connect with different facets of their personalities since we want girls to know that they can be one way in the classroom and another way on the sports field or dance studio! Part of the preparation for the photography experience is talking to girls about what they are going to wear and how they control the power of how they want to be seen in the world by others which is one of the first steps towards teaching them to be responsible with their image on social media etc.
After the photography experience is the big reveal where we take girls through a process where they view the images and hear some of their own words and ideas from the Experience Day Interview. The goal is to view the images together and have a discussion on how simple things from lighting to posing to the simple tilt of the head can change the entire emotion and message of an image. With the extracurricular images girls are able to see some of their strengths and weaknesses, this has proven to be especially beneficial for dancers, gymnasts and those sports with a heavy emphasis on body placement to achieve desire results in a maneuver.
The Final Piece is that we help girls find images that are reflective of who they are at their core and how they want to be seen in the world. Our goal is for girls to leave from this experience with some beautiful artwork to be displayed in their rooms as a reminder to themselves every morning when they way of of this incredible experience, how Amazing they felt and how Fabulous they are! The girls are also gifted 1 year access to our online platform for girls, The Empowered Girl App so that they have continuing access to inspiring stories, ideas and tools to keep them moving forward working on their challenge areas and reaching for their goals!
