President's Message

Girl Power is a leading advocate for the social, mental, and physical health and wellness of girls of color around the globe. We've come together this month to celebrate the power of being a girl and acknowledge the advances we have made in keeping girls safe, nurtured, and protected. Please join us in our ongoing fight for gender equity and equality and seeing our future through the eyes of a girl.

Donor Spotlight

By: Rashada Campbell, Director of Operations

Our donor this month is not only dedicated to making people feel and look their best when hitting the water, they are also committed to improving the lives of young girls throughout Dade County. South Florida native, Ali G., is the owner of Montce Swim located in Miami’s Design District.

Since 2009, this designer has credited her success to her simple formula of style and substance combined with an obsessive focus on fit. With her brother Devin by her side, the sibling duo owns and operates three locations, including Ft. Lauderdale, Miami’s Design District, and Hermosa Beach, which has been featured in Vogue Magazine and is sold worldwide. We send a big thank you to Ali G., Devin, and the 40+ team members at Montce Swim for choosing Girl Power as their charity of Choice!

Ali G., You Rock!

Board Spotlight

Ms. Rolinda McCarthy

Over the past 8 years, Girl Power has been fortunate to have Ms. Rolinda McCarthy serve as Treasurer of the Board of Directors. Ms. Rolinda has assisted the organization with maintaining good fiscal health and keeping the organization ahead of the game when it comes to non-profit fiscal management.

As founder of TNR Accounting Consulting Services, Inc., Ms. Rolinda’s goal was to create internal power and increase the capacity of organizations of color to become effective advocates, leaders, and catalysts for change in their communities. She has dedicated years of service to organizations like The Maryland Crime Victims' Resource Center, Inc., LISTEN, Inc., The Brookings Institution, The Sonny Foundation, D.M.S. Aircraft Services, Pinnacle Defense Systems, South Florida Mindful Center, and The Urban League.

Ms. Rolinda earned a Bachelor's degree in Finance, Organizational Development, and Psychology and a Master's of Developmental Psychology, and will complete her Doctorate in Psychology in the Fall of 2022. Her passion for learning has always been her guiding compass. As she continues to think about the next stage of her career evolution, Ms. Rolinda has decided to pursue a career as a Psychoneurological Therapist to assist with bridging the gap of accessibility and support around mental health within her community.
