National Leader of the Year 2017
“During my middle school years, I had a tough time navigating mental health issues, friendship drama, bullying, and building self-confidence…Years later, when my sister entered middle school and I saw her go through similar issues, I knew something had to be done…I founded the Richmond Hill Girl Talk chapter in November 2015 with the desire to empower girls with an inclusive, sustainable solution to the issues they were facing…I was so proud to see our mentees explore, challenge and take action against issues such as body shaming, racism, hyper-sexualization, abusive relationships, and peer pressure."
Natural Life Give, Love, Laugh Scholarship 2017
“I saw girls who were once shy radiate confidence, and all they really needed was love and support. I quickly realized that I needed to recreate this in my school. Girl Talk camp helped me discover a passion I had for helping girls gain the confidence they deserve.”
Ron Bell Inspirational Leader Award 2017
“As I reflect on my Girl Talk journey, I finally realized who I am and what I stand for. I realized that I am lucky enough to be different, so I shouldn’t change myself. I am a proud Iranian girl with strong dark genes that stand out in a crowd!...Girl Talk brought the best out in me. It made me become conscious of the value of my diversity and the worth of my word. I hope to help every girl realize the beaming light that lives inside them and their individual beauty.”
Ron Bell Inspirational Leader Award 2017
“Before Girl Talk, I let my introversion consume me because I had no idea a ‘quiet leader’ could exist. I relied heavily on my peers to be the first to speak up or to take action. Now, I know a quiet leader is exactly who I am, and through Girl Talk, I found a balance between using my voice and letting others use theirs. But the most fulfilling of all, I am discovering opportunities every day to encourage others to find their balance as well.”
