Established December 8, 2017 a group of women met during a GIRLS Night In Sleepover at the founders home. We met as strangers and left as friends, creating the perfect bond. December 12, 2017, from that moment, G.I.R.L.S. was formed.
One member expressed:
“All my life I’ve struggled to be friendly with women. It’s only recently that I’ve learned that I was trying to be friends with “girls”, not women. See it’s taken me a while to distinguish between the two. Girls club and drink irresponsibly; women entertain with beverages because we have to be ready to handle tomorrow’s responsibilities. Girls are catty and talk sh*t behind each other’s back; women will shade you to your face to clue in on what you need to work on or, if they’re your real friends, tell you the truth and help you get yourself together.
For these, and several other reasons, I chose to befriend men. Now, as a member of this group, I’m glad to be around WOMEN who move & think like me, who enjoy the connection that comes from being around women who want to uplift each other, and understand that cheering on another woman does not dull her individual shine.
May we all have the youthful spirit of GIRLS but command the respect due to WOMEN. ~Tomica 12/24/17~”
The name of the group says a lot about our mission, which focus on the growth of our sisterhood, the growth of us coming together as the resilient women we are!! A group of women who support the opportunity to build each other up, to uplift each other, no matter our backgrounds.
A group of women who support individualism, ideas, and entrepreneurship. A group of women who welcome’s you to be yourself, to own your beauty, to own being the woman you are!! We share our truths and own our faults – without judgement. In this group, we all have the youthful spirit of G.I.R.L.S. and will continue to have the admiration of a woman!!
