I've known Carrie since middle school. This doesn't surprise me one bit, because she is one of the most smart, passionate, caring women I've ever known! She expects a lot from others, and even more from herself. She def has that tough love DNA. The EmpowHERment program is in good hands! Carrie's one of those leaders that her presence makes a difference and it's awesome to see that she hasn't stopped being the crazy, high energy, fearless lady that she was when we were teens. Congrats and keep being you. This movement is needed for girls and women everywhere.

Turning girls into leaders??? I would argue that girls are already natural born leaders. Our dominant narrative sadly and falsely tells us otherwise. But, thank God for Carrie Cook and the EmpowerHERment mentors for encouraging the innate skills and tendencies inherent in girls from birth. Carrie said it best, tapping into and maximizing our full potential. I agree with her that it is indeed, a movement and not just an organization. In short, the term "Girl Power" oddly combines two words that are synonymous. Girls ARE powerful by nature. Thank you Carrie Cook for the vision to encourage just that! Continued blessings.

"Cook said the empowHERment vision hit her like a ton of bricks"...... I can relate. I think we all have those "aha" moments, if we stay in tuned with our purpose. Thank you Miss Cook and all these ladies- keep up the good work!
