From the Organizer

Girls World Expo is a very personal venture that grew out of what we saw in the lives of our daughters; too many negative influences and far too few positive. We saw vulnerable young women at a crucial stage in their lives whose self-images and self-esteem had to struggle against unflattering or unattainable media portrayals of perfection, lack of visible high achieving female role models and hurtful comments and criticism from peers. The negative impact of much of this was amplified by the prevalence of social media as a means of communication. We wanted more – for our daughters, for us, and for everyone. Each of these girls’ lives has the potential for greatness. Realizing that potential, however, requires that we offer girls something more than what has been available.
