Every girl deserves a voice. From when they are young we aim to teach them how to stand tall, spread their wings and take flight on the wildest adventures they can possibly dream. We want our girls to persevere– despite the negative voices they’ll hear along the way.
For some, confidence and self-love come naturally. For others, it’s a life-long challenge to recognize their worth. But regardless of just how secure one may seem, moments of weakness will inevitably present themselves.
There will be days when self-esteem is low, where she feels less than and small, when feels she isn’t enough. In those times, when girls struggle to fill their own cup, the words of others can be a guide to help find their way.
Here are some of our favorite quotes that inspire girls towards a revolution of strength, courage and unbridled self-worth. Every girl deserves a voice– even if at times it is borrowed.
