Lets see what Zoe has to say about her time with StrongHER!
Why did you decide to volunteer for StrongHER?
I decided to volunteer with StrongHer because the organization’s message and mission are very close to my heart. I am extremely passionate about women empowerment and wanted to use my experiences to help others grow and eventually be able to spread the positivity.
What is your favorite part of being a lead volunteer?
My favorite part about being a volunteer is being able to make an impact on these girl’s lives and to know that they are learning something that will have a great impact on their future.
What have you learned about yourself while volunteering?
Through being a volunteer, I've gained more confidence in public speaking and opening up to people. I’ve also learned the power of mindfulness and meditation!
What has been your favorite memory volunteering so far?
My favorite memory so far has been the positive mindset workshop. It was so fun seeing the girls step outside of their comfort zones while also stepping outside of mine... all the while, I got to teach them fun power poses!
Zoe is currently leading our StrongHER skill series workshop at the Boys and Girls Club in Chelsea, MA. She meets with 10 girls from the club once a month working on skills to build confidence and inner strength. We're so lucky to have Zoe as a part of our team. She is an amazing role model and is truly making an impact!
Thank you Zoe for taking the time to chat with us!
