Exciting News!

Hi everyone!! We are finally back for another awesome year and I have so much exciting news to share with you! Thanks to your love and support last year, I spent all summer working on making my dream come alive. I look forward to making an even bigger impact this year in the lives of my 19 deserving girls. It's definitely going to take time, but I'm proud of the work I've accomplished so far and I am pumped to share it with you today! Today's post is in honor of my birthday today. I know that my 25th year will be my best year yet as I pursue my passions and make my dreams come true! I am grateful to be able to share this journey with all of you. Without further adieu, here we go... 

Drum roll please! 

1. A brand new name! 

As I'm sure you noticed, Girl Rising is no longer. The name Girl Rising is unfortunately already the name of a well-known documentary. I wanted to come up with a name that was 100% my own so that I could brand it as mine and start my business. After much thought and consideration, our new name is RISE like a girl. I am totally in love with the new name and everything that it represents. (Check out the "Mission" page to see what it all means!) I hope that you love it as much as I do. 

2. A beautiful new website! 

Having the blog for the past year has been really special. It has given the opportunity to express my voice in a way I never thought I could. But honestly, as far as aesthetics are concerned, it was ugly. Graphic design is not my strength so I got someone to help me create my brand in the form of my website. I am so happy with how it turned out! It's not just a blog anymore. Now you can see my mission statement, parent & student testimonials, a donation page, and my contact information. 

3. A kick-butt logo! 


Ah! How awesome is my logo?! It's everything I ever wanted it to be. It's a simple, yet powerful image that completely encompasses everything RISE like a girl is all about. 

4. Social media! 

We now have a Facebook page and an Instagram to get the word out about all of the wonderful things RISE like a girl is doing. Please like and follow to show your support! 
Facebook: RISE like a girl 
Instagram: riselikeagirl 
Links to both pages can be found at the top of this page. 



That's it! I hope you're just as excited about everything as I am. These new additions are helping build the foundation to eventually make RISE like a girl my business. Please support the girls and I by likingfollowing, and donating. Your support truly means the world to me. 

Blogs will begin again in 2 weeks after our 1st annual RISE like a girl Retreat! Have a great week!
