Courtney Ferrell’s latest idea, Girl Up, empowers young women to take full advantage of their gifts, their independence, and their possibilities in order to create an extraordinary life for themselves. As a creativity consultant and international speaker, Courtney Ferrell can be found standing at the busy intersection of ideas, energy, and people.
As she explains, Courtney Ferrell believes the single greatest resource society has is its young women 17-24 years old. Her mission is to provide girls with actions and language that will help them put common (and uncommon) sense into practice. As a result, she hopes they will become a sought-after person without compromising who they are. In the past decade, she has worked intimately with thousands of young women. She has held jobs as a speaker, teacher, coach, dorm mother, mentor and more.
Take 15 minutes of your day to watch this video and as a result, change your life. It’s not just for girls either. It’s for anyone, because hopefully it will help you empower the young women in your life.
Produced independently of the TED Conferences, Courtney Ferrell gave this “Girl Up” talk at a TEDx event.
