“I learned how to stand up to a bully without being a bully myself.”

“I get bullied at school and what I learned today is to talk to the bully one-on-one and tell them how you feel. Thank you for helping me!”

“I love the confidence shown in everybody, it makes me feel good to be a girl.”

“I learned today that no matter what, you should love yourself for who you are.”

“My favorite thing about being a girl is empowering other girls!”

“My favorite thing about being a girl is being able to be friends with other girls and get to know them!”

“In the Steps to Respect Workshop, I learned that tattling is not the same as reporting. Tattling is trying to hurt someone, and reporting is telling an adult you trust.”

Thank you to all of our attendees for coming to We Are Girls, and for sharing their experiences! We love hearing from you! If you’d like to share your favorite thing about the Conference, email maria@genaustin.org
