WHAT PEOPLE SAY...
"I cannot even explain how thankful I am. In Girls on Fire, you always tried to make us better women, on the inside and out. This year, you’ve made me take a close look at my insecurities, my weaknesses, and turned them into strengths or things I accept. . .The person I was in August is a different person from who I am today. Today, I hold my head high, and I’ve learned that other people’s opinions don’t even matter. The only thing that matters is how I see myself.”
Lyeisha Grant, 2016 Girls on Fire Program Participant
"Ok, well thanks again for everything this year; you made me realize a lot of things about myself."
Khalisha Williams, 2015 Girls on Fire Program Participant
"I know you are going to continue Girls on Fire next year, and you are smart for thinking about something for girls, so they can get out of their comfort zone and reach their highest potential."
Babari Naabien, 2015 Girls on Fire Program Participant
This is a great program with a solid mission! I must say I have been impressed with the level of engagement and activities throughout the year along with the smiles on the faces of the girls during the end of the year ceremony.

Raven the Innovator
"Keep pushing; eventually it will pay off."
St. Louis Community College - Florissant Valley
Major: Graphic Design
Raven has overcome many obstacles in her life and is celebrating victory. She battled mental health disorders throughout high school. She shares, "If I could give my younger self advice it would be to love yourself and never think anyone loves you more than you except God, and I would tell myself, 'Don’t let the wrong people in your life and continue to apologize their way back when they mess up.'" Raven's honest advice was well-received at the 2019 Girls on Fie Powerful Girls Panel.
"I am a woman on fire because after so many trials and errors, every sad moment, every doubt I had and my family had for me, I pushed through and I’m making a way for myself with my professional photography business."
