Do you have the desire to connect with women globally? Do you feel as though you are meant for something bigger than yourself, that your purpose is greater than anyone else can see? Do you want to become a part of a community that loves, accepts, cherishes and appreciates women and men for who they are and what they do? If you answered 'yes' to all of these questions then I AM THAT GIRL is the non-profit organization for you!

I AM THAT GIRL (IATG) is a best-selling book turned GLOBAL, non-profit, organization that accepts both men and women and helps to transform their self-doubt into self-love. I AM THAT GIRL has created global on campus chapters and educates their members through online and offline programs and training. So far they have created over 175 chapters in over 20 countries, have grown an online community of over 700,000 members and have reached over 5 million people worldwide. Their chapters host meetings weekly, bi-weekly or monthly to provide a safe space for their members to connect and have honest conversations about current issues that matter.

I AM THAT GIRL raises standards for women and men for how they not only treat each other but themselves and those around them. They dedicate themselves to creating a community where men and women can be seen, be heard and belong. This allows for the members to love themselves as they are and share their strength and positivity with others on their high school or college campus.

Camellia Khalvati a director at the IATG Headquarters expressed just how this organization has positively impacted her and the women around her: "Before joining the IATG HQ team I was a chapter leader. It was the most profound experience I've ever had for it reminded me of my worth and how magical it is for girls to come together and celebrate one another. My experience with IATG gave me some of the best female friendships that will last for a lifetime, and personal lessons that have shaped me into the person I am today. It's amazing what meaningful conversation and a safe space can do".

Camellia also believes that more young women and men should join IATG because "everyone needs a safe space where they can be 100% themselves. A place where IATG members talk about all the important things and make the time to listen and to be heard. We are stronger together and IATG is showing that every day".
