“My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A powerful quote embodied by Texas based Girl With Grit and they are doing this by providing girls and women “crash course workshops in everything from the arts to entrepreneurship, to the trades to real life skills – such as automotive care, tools and more”. They believe and support opportunities that are often overlooked for girls, all while making it a fun and interactive experience.

What we love
Two things: Their 1934 Chevy Truck that students get to work on during the program. Second, their entrepreneur program that is run through the Come and Make it! space which is a hands-on learning for all in the arts, trades, business, STEAM, and life skills. Students take part in an annual pop-up shops, monthly business class, and product development workshops.
