FOUNDED IN 2013 … Girls Are Powerful is the brainchild of Shawntan Howell, who was frustrated with the lack of cultural appropriateness options available in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area to help girls build healthy self-esteem and awareness of self and others. With her eyes set on a brighter future, she began planning and organizing a movement to teach girls to own their power and embrace their individuality through affirmations, self-reflection, and mutual support.
Here are our accomplishments for 2018.
