Do you know the rules of Girlworld?
To me, it's inserting the word 'like' in the middle of a sentence, normally before an adjective... posing and remaining 'cool' at all times is a must... always being embarrassed by what your parents do.... Sounding more familiar?!
Well, the Girl Leadership Institution (GLI) wants to step away from this world of strict rules. It challenges this facade of 'sef control' and inspires girls to just be themselves. The brains behind GLI is Rachel Simmons. She believes that "a connected girl is a happy girl". She's written books and is a teacher on bullying-prevention amongst young girls at school, and believes that GLI programs, such as their very popular summer camps, are the key to teaching girls to be strong and independant. They consist of playing sport, self discovery workshops, making films, going on field trips- the list seems to be endless!
Using Rachel's words: "There’s no greater gift you can give a girl than the permission to be herself."
