They were wrong. Continue reading “Serena and the Power of Accidental Activism”

Photo Essay: Where Girls Grow Strong

By Lauren Linhard –

Everyone has heard the phrase, “You’re such a girl,” often used in a derogatory sense when someone is being overly emotional or is bad at sports. I, myself, have also heard a different version of that overdone saying – “You’re such a Girl Scout.”

My favorite response? Well yes, yes I am. And frankly, anyone who knows what it means to be a Girl Scout takes it as a compliment. Continue reading “Photo Essay: Where Girls Grow Strong”
