I Am That Girl

from Bilyana Simonoski, Resource Development Intern

This year, I had the privilege of listening to Alexis Jones, Founder of I Am That Girl, speak to a crowd of college students and inspire them to follow their passion, whatever it may be, and empower girls to shatter stereotypes and positively impact the world. Jones herself is a shining example of this; proven by her tales of climbing Mount Everest, living in a garage while paying her way through college, and becoming Founder and CEO of I Am That Girl, all before the ripe old age of 26.

Jones and her staff have a fun, honest approach to empowering women to have confidence in themselves, change the world in whatever way they can and “look good while doing it.” They are also determined to redefine the definition of beauty, which they believe:

“…spawns from the intangibles; passion, integrity, charisma, creativity, intelligence, independence, sense of humor, savvy, humility, compassion, courage, our audacity to dream big, our resilience to get back up and our ability to love ourselves and others unconditionally.”
