March is Women's History Month, and we have over 900 Mini Mermaids starting their adventure. These girls are learning what it means to really KNOW their worth from the inside out. They are seeing how powerful it feels to be a part of a tribe and guess what? Studies back this up - girls need tribes or small circles to learn self-compassion and inner strength. I could go on and on about this but I think Coach Megen from Northern California says it best, check her video out below.
It's hard sometimes to imagine we have to do the work of making sure girls know they have a voice and yet...we do. Girls are still growing up wondering if they have something of significance to contribute or if they are enough just the way they are. We are here to tell them in fact, they are very smart, strong, courageous, and caring. We are here to help them quiet down Siren's voice of criticism and fear and listen to Mini Mermaids voice of strength instead. Mini Mermaid's voice helps move us forward in a world that works hard to hold us back. As women and men, we need to stand together and help grow up kids who stand for what is right, who know their worth inside and out and feel all the brave they need to in order to crush their dreams and goals in life. Who knows, one day in the future, we might be honoring one of our very own Mini Mermaids in Women's History Month.
Let's work together to help each other believe we have a voice and that our contributions matter. - Heidi Boynton, Executive Director
