What Does Female Strong Mean to You?

For me, this goes beyond an organization that does so much. This goes beyond a term that has so much power in its definition alone. It is a feeling that moves me the moment I speak it. Female Strong means women, young girls owning every aspect of who they are and letting that lead them to be everything they are to be, everything they are to do. It means not just accepting, but appreciating every aspect of our spirit, every experience we’ve had and embracing that as a source of power. This includes the hurdles and the highs. Female Strong means power that transcends circumstance by always choosing faith over fear. Female Strong, for me, has no boundaries in its meaning as a noun, verb, or adjective. It is the greatness of who we continue to be as emerging women…at any age.
