Introducing myself and my journal: Pretty Brainy

About Me:
There is brilliance in every girl, and to help each girl connect with her authenticity, self-confidence, and heroic mission, I founded Pretty Brainy, Inc., in 2008 (online at Our mission is to elevate the perception of what girls are capable of in the world --- both the world's perception of girls and girls' perception of themselves. Our medium: Smart Fashion for Smart Girls. Pretty Brainy launched with an embellished girls' printed tee, designed to be equally pretty and brainy, practical and inspiring. My vision for the company includes bringing forth goods that incorporate the fine work of women around the globe.

My Passions:
Design that authentically reflects preteen girls; speaking to groups on "How to Raise a Self-Confident Daughter"; broadening girls' view of themselves & the planet on which they live.

My Challenges:
Capital and staffing

My Vision for the Future:
Seeing more girls become women who have attained their aspirations and ambitions.

My Areas of Expertise:
Writing, Teaching, Innovative Design for Girls That also Appeals to Women, Speaking to Groups
