What does it mean to be Empowered & Poised?

To be empowered & poised means that we possess wonderful and admirable qualities within us that are far more worthy of praise and love than simply our exteriors shells. It is to be oneself and to have the strength to be unapologetically you. Being empowered & poised means taking care of your overall well-being. This includes constantly searching out ways to become a better, stronger version of yourself, yet accepting and loving who you are at each step in the process. Being empowered & poised also requires helping yourself and others to live an empowered and poised life.

When we connect with our community supporting and sharing with one another we can truly make this world a much more beautiful place to live.

Our motto: Our motto is “Be You. Be Strong. Be Empowered & Poised”, which is taught by providing our mental, emotional, and physical support/services, as listed on our Our Services page.

Life can be tough as a girl. The constant criticisms we receive can be downright brutal. Nothing ever seems to be good enough in the eyes of society. My desire is to create a movement that helps to build girls into Empowered & Poised women by teaching them fundamental skills focused on mental, social, and physical well-being. This movement will allow girls to see that they are perfect just the way they are!
