Natural Life Give, Love, Laugh Scholarship 2022
Girl Talk has allowed me to realize how rewarding it is to mentor younger girls. I made many friendships from Girl Talk and saw first-hand the impact I was having on younger girls. I saw them grow into great leaders and become more confident. Seeing this impacted me because I got the reward of seeing my positive influence on the girls I was working with. This inspires me to continue my Girl Talk position to help many more girls become confident leaders. I have helped over a hundred girls become happier, confident leaders, and I plan on helping hundreds more by bringing Girl Talk to college with me. I am also excited my Girl Talk chapter is continuing with the new leaders I have chosen and coached to lead Girl Talk next year when I am in college.
Natural Life Give, Love, Laugh Scholarship 2022
Being a Girl Talk Leader has impacted me in several ways. I have my own chapter through Girl Talk so I have the opportunity to lead meetings with middle school girls. This has increased my own confidence and leadership skills immensely. Along with this I have had the opportunity to be a Girl Talk Ambassador. That has taught me a lot about myself. During our monthly meetings we were asked questions that really made me get in tune with who Grace was. We also had to speak our honest opinions on how to make Girl Talk even better and more special. Through this all Ambassadors had to be organized to keep everything that we had talked/learned about in order. Being a Girl Talk leader has increased my confidence and organizational skills but most importantly it has helped me find who I truly am.
Jill Campbell STEAM Scholarship 2022
Girl Talk has been a big part of my journey towards advocating for women's access to the world of STEAM. I've been able to have important conversations with my Girl Talk girls about empowerment and how they see themselves now and in the future. This year in particular, I have had the opportunity to impact the academic careers of my girls. I was able to talk to the girls about our county's various STEAM pathways and their potential for success in those programs. That one-on-one impact was really important for me as I was able to introduce my girls to opportunities they didn't even think where available to them.

As a previous board of director and Board Chair, she invests her time and resources to further our mission. But more than this, Jill serves as a role model to our mentees and Leaders. She’s been a keynote speaker at many of our leadership events and inspires our attendees with her authenticity and passion for helping the next generation of leaders. Jill Campbell truly exemplifies our vision of empowered women supporting women.
