WHO IS I AM GIRL?
I created the character of I AM Girl to mirror Wonder Woman, the Invisible Woman, Bat Girl, and She-Hulk of the super-heroine world. These super heroine powers belonged to fictional women who had alter egos, Susan Prince, Susan Storm, Yvonne Craig and Jennifer Walters. I believe fiction imitates reality and I know there is a super-heroine living inside Every Girl.
I Am Girl’s alter ego is Every Girl.
The dynamic character of Every Girl (aka E.G.) is meant to be a representation of all girls because every girl has an inner heroine living inside of her. Like the comic book stories about young women discovering their powers and learning how to use them, the I AM Initiative’s purpose is to teach girls how to use their own I AM powers in a positive way and bring about change in the world.
Every Girl has an I AM Girl living inside of her.
I am an I AM Girl. My name is Lisa Van Ahn and I’m the creator of the I AM Initaitve, Every Girl, and I AM Girl. I created the characters and curriculum because I’m dedicated to teaching every girl I encounter in life the power of her thoughts, the distincition of intuition vs. fear, how to love herself, and live positively and responsibly in our world using her own inner I AM powers.
I am passionate about influencing and bettering the world one girl at a time. You can read more of the story on how I found my own inner I AM super powers here.
