From cyberbullying to societal pressure, 21st century girls face challenges that generations before them may have never imagined. But they also have unlimited resources and opportunities to live powerfully.
Rasheda Kamaria Williams, an award-winning mentor and chief empowering officer for Empowered Flower Girl, explores how girls and young women can use their personal power to make a difference in her new book “Be EmPOWERed: How to Live Above & Beyond Life’s Drama.”
Written for and inspired by girls, Be EmPOWERed is an interactive guide packed with inspirational prose, thought-provoking questions, written activities and notes pages for journaling.
Once teased and bullied by classmates for being weird and different, Rasheda found a way to embrace and ultimately celebrate her uniqueness.
The book reveals her journey from excluded to emPOWERed and how she got there with help from trusted adults, mentors, friends and ultimately herself.
I read your book and felt very “empowered “after reading it. I found the book to be very positive and can’t wait for my granddaughter to read it who just started the 6th grade. Kudos to you young lady for giving our girls of all races that added push. Thank you for this exceptional read that I am so proud to pass on to her. – Sue Smith, grandma and retired childcare entrepreneur
My current, 13- year-old mentee will benefit so much from the Be EmPOWERed book! I notice her discounting her talents/body/ideas too frequently –she doesn’t feel emPOWERed! I am confident this book will make a huge difference in her self-esteem and self-expression. I think it will be a great book to discuss together too. Be EmPOWERed gets girls thinking, dreaming and taking action! – Paula Dirkes, mentor and author
