Smarter than Barbie, Stronger than Ken
Girl Leaders was founded in January 2009 at UCLA on the belief that a small group of people can make a big difference.
The Girl Leaders team is compromised of UCLA undergraduate students. We all come from different backgrounds and are headed down different paths, but we are all connected by our dedication to helping other women achieve their dreams.
The Girl Leaders Mission
It is our belief here, at Girl Leaders, that a small group of people can make a big difference. We believe that it is our duty to share our experiences with other young women. All of us at Girl Leaders know what it feels like to doubt ourselves, what it feels like to make mistakes, and what it feels like to fall. However, we have learned to stay confident and believe in ourselves. Most importantly, we know how significant it is to know that others believe in us. Here at Girl Leaders, it is our mission to aid and believe in other young women who are following their dreams.
Girl Leaders is establishing a series of leadership conferences at local Los Angeles high schools to teach the importance of the following crucial issues:
- Health and fitness
- Body image
- Breaking down stereotypes
- Safety in a college setting
