And then they were nine… It’s hard to believe that those teeny tiny premmie twins have grown into beautiful, delightful 9-year olds, each with a different personality but so wonderful in their own way. I won’t lie, I find it hard to see them grow up so fast and letting them go into the big scary world that is out there. As a mother of four girls (and a boy) I am always looking for ways to inspire my little ladies and help them grow into strong, confident women, which is why I was so excited to discover the Girl Hero Project:
Powered by Australian author Susannah McFarlane, who you may know from her successful book series EJ12, the Girl Hero Project is a brand new online space dedicated to tween girls and their parents. Susannah’s vision for the platform is to offer a safe, age-appropriate environment where girls can go to hear a different dialogue around what it means to be a girl, to encourage girls to speak up, get active in their communities, to inspire them to write, play and learn that they are never too small to do big things.
It is no secret that tween and teen girls are struggling in today’s society, and that building their confidence and self-esteem from an early age is incredibly important. The Girl Hero Project doesn’t waste words on all the superficial things society cares for, and instead focusses on strong, inspirational girls who make a difference in their community and the world, who lift others up instead of breaking them down and who, as young as they are, build long-lasting legacies.
By becoming a Girl Hero you can learn about other inspirational girl heroes, read and share helpful inspirations and tips, create affirmations for yourself and your friends that empower and lift you up, join in the writing competition and much more. And the best part is, everyone can join in and it is completely free!
As a special treat for Hip Little One readers author Susannah McFarlane is kindly giving away a copy of her fabulous book EJ Girl Hero – Hot and Cold to the first 10 Hip Little One readers who join the Girl Hero Project.
