Happy testimonials from happy kids

GirlPower helped me to stand up for myself, to feel confident about who I am, and the 4 Friendship Facts are words that I’ll never forget!

I reckon this program helped me heaps. I will remember the Quick Comebacks and using intelligence to put out Friendship Fires.
