The Journey to Empowering Young Girls
One of my goals for 2018 is to Empower young girls, to help them stand confidently in any situation and get a feeling for what it means to be strong inside and out. There is no such thing as “girl push ups” it’s the attitude you walk in the room with, I Can and I Will.
I am excited about the opportunity FIT has this year to work with some of the girls getting ready for Miss Iowa.
We have partnered up with Miss Greater Des Moines Scholarship Pageant to help girls become strong and confident with their bodies.
I read this from Johnna Cleaver, Miss Pearl City’s blog:
This is what empowering is. The dictionary definition of ’empower’ is make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.
As pageant women, and women in general, we have to focus on building each other up every step of the way. Doing your best and encouraging others in pageantry and in life is the way to be a leader and a good friend. So whether it’s your first time in a pageant or your age-out year- Empower and love one another.
I am proud to say from our Coaches to our members I see this empowerment in the community of women at FIT every day. I am looking forward to being able to help pass this along to a younger generation.
Strong Women Lift Each Other Up.
This post was sparked by Miss Scott County, Katie Markey who has been working hard to make her body stronger. Pushing outside of her comfort zone is what I have been the proudest of her for. Just because its hard or you don’t get it right the first time doesn’t mean you stop. Change happens outside of your comfort zone and that is not easy mentally or physically. I Can and I Will. It won’t be pretty or perfect the first time, the consistency of practice is what makes you better….not perfect….better.
