The Global Girls Project™
At the Global Girls Project™, we believe that every female, regardless of age, culture, religious or socio-economic status, should be entitled to the basic human right to live her voice out loud and become a leader in her own life.
Looking through the lens of sixteen foundational principles of heart-aligned living and leadership, this collaborative writing project invites you to share stories and advice from your own journey toward empowerment and leadership.
Through this project, we hope this global collection of stories will not only inspire and uplift, but encourage and empower others to find their own voice, too, passing on the legacy of leadership from one generation of women to the next.
What is Heart-Aligned Leadership?
Heart-aligned living and leadership is about living and leading from our heart place…our heart space. It is about transparency, authenticity, integrity, and honor. It is about connecting with others, just as we seek to reconnect with ourselves, recognizing that we each have the unique and amazing gift of ourselves to share with the world. It is not defined or measured by external definitions of success such as title, fame, power or earnings, but by alignment with core principles of character that unite us all.
Sharing Our Story…
At the Global Girls Project™, we believe in the power of collaboration. We believe in the idea that each of us has something valuable to contribute to the advancement of women and girls’ around the world, and that together, we can achieve more than any one of us can do alone. We are eager to share the good works of others and consider it a privilege when we are invited to do the same.
Below are links to those who have lent direct support to our own efforts by inviting us to share a piece of our story with them. To read the stories, just click on the images below. We are grateful to each of you.

The Global Girls Project is not about whether you can have it all, but whether you can become your all. Success, in this context, is not defined by external labels of achievement, but by internal alignment of values and the fullest expression of who you are.

One thing that really drew my attention to this project is the fact that it will have an effect with women from all walks of life…A woman in a rural village in Cameroon can relate to it.
