In their personal lives the courageous “Women of Girl Power” are mothers, grandmothers, wives, head of households, CEO’s, business owners, political movers and shakers and women who support not only their own families but extended families as well. 

 

This month we celebrate the vision, power, and achievements of the “Women of Girl Power” who help open doors of opportunity and provide safe spaces for at-promise girls to find their voices, live their best lives and reach their full potential.

Women are the backbone of Girl Power Rocks. They serve on our front line providing direct services, safety, care, support, and nurturing environments to girls and their families. Their contributions are essential to breaking down barriers and supporting at-promise girls as they navigate through life and learn to find their purpose and passion. 

 

The “Women of Girl Power” play a significant role on our Board of Directors, serving as board chairs, treasurers, committee members and are the leaders in fundraising, sustainability and blazing a pathway for others to follow.

I am strong, like wind, not a toy for you men. I am not weak;

I am strong as a beak.

I am royalty and bring loyalty.

Don't doubt me, I am not dumb. I am smart, I am art.

I am funny, sweet as honey.

I am not to be assigned; I am my own design.

I will be famous, at least that's my aim.

They will always call my name, all because of the fame.

I will be a track star, a singer or an artist

And even though I smile, we know my past was the hardest.

I'm full of love.

I'm full of joy, originality, enthusiasm.

I take pride and I don't hide.

I AM CHARDONNAY

I'm pretty & I'm funny.

I'm smart and Ion' play about my money.

Act like you know, my momma didn't raise no dummy, so you know I ain't bummy.

On the rise to success, Imma be in my professor chest. Stepping on y'alls neck

Ha! Ya'll know I'm the best, because when I grow up, I'm going to be the BEST ultrasound tech.

Words From Kind Kathy

Word of the Day: Dependable
Dependable: Trustworthy and reliable.

Today's word of the day is "dependable". What does it mean to be dependable? It's about being someone others can count on, someone who consistently acts sensibly and fulfills their commitments. Let's take a moment to reflect: Are you dependable? Would your friends, family, or colleagues consider you dependable?

Dependability is a crucial soft skill. It means doing what you say you'll do, when you say you'll do it. It's about being responsive, accountable, and consistent. Employers value dependability highly, as it ensures tasks are completed efficiently and with quality. But it's not just about work; being dependable enriches our personal relationships and fosters trust within our communities.

Screen Shot 2024-03-22 at 12.13.19 AM.png

So, how can we demonstrate dependability in our lives? Here are some tips:

1. Do what you say you will do: Follow through on commitments.
2. Be timely: Arrive punctually and ready to work.
3. Be responsive: Take initiative and address issues promptly.
4. Be organized: Establish systems to stay on top of tasks.
5. Meet deadlines: Manage time effectively to deliver on time.
6. Be accountable: Take responsibility for your actions.
7. Follow up: Keep your promises and communicate effectively.
8. Teamwork: Support your colleagues and contribute positively.
9. Be consistent: Act and communicate with reliability.

Being dependable isn't just a trait; it's a commitment to ourselves and others. Let's strive to embody dependability in everything we do, for it not only benefits those around us but also nurtures our own growth and success.

On a related note, let's not forget the importance of being **reliable**. Reliability ensures consistent quality and trustworthiness. Whether it's in our personal or professional lives, reliability is key to building strong relationships and achieving our goals.

Think about it: What can you do today to demonstrate dependability and reliability?

Warm regards,
Kind Kathy

In the world of women's empowerment and community advocacy, Chanae Wood stands as a beacon of inspiration, hope and change. As we celebrate her achievements this month, it's clear that her impact extends far beyond the confines of her professional career as an attorney for Weiss Serota LLC.

 

Joining the Girl Power Rocks Family in 2023, Chanae swiftly became an integral part of the Girl Power Rocks family, not only as a member but also as its legal counsel. Her background in zoning and land use positioned her as an important guide for Girl Power as we venture into the world of construction and development, serving as counsel for Girl Power as we construct Mama Hattie’s House —the home we are building for girls aging out of foster care and those vulnerable to human trafficking. Chanae's dedication to ensuring that every girl has a safe and supportive environment to thrive in echoes Girl Power's mission of "Improving Our World, One Girl at a Time."

Yet, it's Chanae's personal journey and entrepreneurial spirit that truly exemplify her commitment to empowering women. As one of the founders of Rom8 Wellness, she has embarked on a mission to show women that they have the innate power to transform their circumstances. She has organized numerous in-person wellness events where individuals gather to learn about enhancing their health and well-being. By fostering a supportive community of like-minded individuals, Chanae is not only imparting knowledge but also instilling a sense of hope and empowerment.

Chanae Wood you rock!
