“This Girl is on Fire” was the theme for I Am Girls Empowerment Inc. as they kicked off their first session of Empowerment Camp recently.


A mentoring program, I Am Girls provides young women with the necessary tools to become “great servants” in their communities, according to a news release.


This session consisted of sharing their I Am with one another, according to a news release.


“Our first session was all about speaking into the girls I Am,” said Founder Danniesha Murphy. “Using positive attributes helps prepare them to become great women in society. It stirs something inside of them. It’s like sowing a seed and following up with the proper necessities for it to grow. As time permits you are able to see the manifestation of your harvest.”


The camp featured Katina Hunter (wife of Torii Hunter, retired Major League Baseball player), as well as Kalisha Price, and their mother, Thelma Hall.


A highlight was of Katrina Hunter sharing with the girls the importance of always grasping for everything within them so their highest potential can be reached, according to the news release.


“You are wonderfully made,” Hunter said.


She also encouraged them to address areas of weaknesses by focusing on their strengthens.


“I am proud of the outcome of this session,” Murphy said. “We set assignments for them to say their I Am (I Am Confident) every morning and night with believing, 1 Corinthians 15:10, ‘By the grace of God, I am what I am’.”


“Our primary intention is to provide access to resources and tools that will empower girls and young ladies on their journey to achieving anything their minds are set to pursue. Camp started April 13, 2019 and ends Dec 14, 2019. Interested girls can sign-up on our websites – iamgirlsempowermentinc.org,” Murphy said.
