Thank you Altria for your donation to Girls For A Change (GFaC).

Around Labor Day last year, Girls For A Change and Camp Diva combined shared visions and values for girls, and joined forces to enrich and expand their programs and services. 

Separately, we were dynamic. Combined, we will be unimaginable.  
Stay tuned for more awesome news and the events.

Join us at the 12th Annual Girls Are Talking Conference, themed “Change Begins with Me”, with Keynote Speaker Author I’esha ‘GaptoothDiva’ Hornes.  

I’esha Hornes, who is also a motivational speaker and entrepreneur, recently released a book entitled “Flawesome,” in which she talks about her own personal battle with confidence, abuse, depression, and more, and the changes she had to make in her life.  After she found her own sense of self-worth, Hornes says it became her mission to influence others.  She further explains “it’s never about being perfect or flawless, it’s about recognizing that despite everything that you’ve had to cope with in your life or whatever you are currently surviving, no matter who you are…you are (what she calls) Flawesome!”
