Connect with I AM THAT GIRL's co-founder, Emily Greener & the IATG community:
I AM THAT GIRL is a community devoted to inspiring girls to discover their innate worth and purpose. I AM THAT GIRL is starting a revolution of women dictating life on our own terms, demanding respect from others but more importantly from ourselves. Being THAT GIRL is an identity, a responsibility and an opportunity for us to stand for something bigger than ourselves and remind girls everywhere that we're on the same team. Being THAT GIRL means that we recognize our worth, that we're perfectly-flawed and sublimely beauty-full. Every time we look in the mirror, we are reminded that we are the author of our own lives, confident in our own skin, believe in the power of our dreams, feel gorgeous inside and out and can reinvent ourselves into whomever we CHOOSE to be. While we’re certainly out to change the world, we must first start with ourselves… so join our mission, rock this world, and be THAT GIRL!
Featured YFE Photographer:
After creating my fair share of collages and doodles in high school, I decided to pursue my interests by majoring in graphic design and photography. During class I created on the computer and by hand to craft expressive works. Now I create custom branding and promotional materials for small businesses by thinking about what the customer wants, as well as capturing photographs that tell a complete story about individuals and events.
