WHAT THE GIRL MOVERS ALUMNI SAY AFTER THEIR CHANGE EXPERIENCE
“Being a Girl MOVER is being able to take risks, pursue your dreams and goals and, even when you fall (or fail), you stand up, shake and rise again. Is believing that you will achieve your dream and that the beauty of learning and achieving is in the path. I no longer dream about the conservation of the natural world. I care and make it happen everyday!”

“Awakening, freedom, faith, self-love, confidence, own voice, gathering hands and be the change. That’s how I resume my experience at Girl MOVE Academy. It’s more than a life experience. It’s a way of living.
I know now that we, women, can do whatever we want if we don’t ever stop believing and leading our own path with hope, love, joy and lots of hard work!”

“I’ve always wanted to dedicate my life to a greater purpose, to have a life full of meaning. I had the drive, just didn’t know where and how to start. When I enrolled for CHANGE my hope increased and the self-awareness and self leadership modules changed the way I saw myself – not only a drive, but the responsibility and ability to make change happen.”
