Public Story
Wonder, girl!
Girls get bombarded with messages about what is seemingly acceptable given their body types or shapes, or hair texture, gender, intelligence, aptitude for sports, music, etc.  It is time for a new narrative.  It is time that all girls feel empowered to wonder.  And not only to wonder, but to make it happen.  The Wonder, Girl Project is one effort towards that inspiration.  It is a project highlighting young women who are not allowing themselves to be limited by stereotypes or by how others might classify them or otherwise think of them.  These are young women who are setting a new standard, young women who are doing it (whatever that special 'it' is for them).  The new narrative is BE WHO YOU ARE.  Wonder, girl!
