Hi I'm Natalie - founder of GirlBE and Raising Strong Daughters

Statistics show between the ages of 8-14, girls’ confidence levels fall between 30 percent. 

Only 27.1% of leaders or managers worldwide are women.

In an era of #Metoo, #EqualPay, #Girlscount, (and now the effects of the global pandemic, and the rise in girls mental health issues!).

If we are going to see our girls flourish, I believe we should do all we can to show girls their worth and empower them towards greatness.
