I am strong because I can lift my own weight. I am smart not just because I get As. I am bold because I am not afraid to stick up for my rights.
As part of Girls Inc. Girls’ Rights Week 2010, Girls Inc. National Scholars met with Susan Sher, First Lady Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff, and Jocelyn Frye, Director of Policy and Projects in the Office of the First Lady, to present findings of Girls Inc. Healthy Girls, Healthy Communities, a project in which girls across the country examined the resources available in their communities to encourage physical activity and barriers that prevent girls from using these resources.
Watch videos of the girls sharing their experiences at the meeting. Then, explore findings from the Healthy Girls, Healthy Communities project on an interactive map.
