SK: What first got you interested in this line of work?MR: I struggled as a young girl with anxiety, feeling alone and isolated. I desired to learn the skills to connect at a deeper level. I wanted to learn to communicate my needs of feeling heard and “mattering” in the world. However, most importantly, I wanted to give back to my community; the very specific tools and skills that I had learned from my hard life experience. I have spent years in therapy and hundreds of thousands of dollars; however living with Christ in me provided me a strong foundation of faith and a daily practice of living in the moment which led to my recovery. Through my journey of self-discovery in my late thirties, a deep desire to advocate for the disadvantage and at-risk youth was developing, and I took a leap of faith, turning over my hidden skill-sets, and prayerfully considered my next step… God delivered to me and I transcribed the Girls in Power curriculum in written form in the summer of 2010 with the intention to launch a program, first for girls. My hope was to reach as many young women as possible, so they would not have to suffer in silence and live behind a mask, as long as I did.SK: Of all of that, what would you say is the most important, or the most prominent part of the job?MR: Getting the word out and generating sustainability---GIP needs funding in order to keep providing programs to youth and families. SK: Is there any part of your job that you especially love doing?MR: I love to teach young girls, teens, mothers and women.God has used my hurts for good and He has shown me how to package up the tools I have learned which have helped me live a more fulfilling life. God is using me, and through me He is letting me share these tools to help others heal, change their ways, change their hearts, cope and manage, develop a healthier mindset, and as well, contribute to society…creating sustainability all around…
Melinda Rae, founder of Girls in Power, is interviewing Molly Snow in this episode..... Melinda invited Molly because they share similar passions for empowering and inspiring young girls.
"Molly joins Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County with 12 years of experience helping non-profit organizations build and improve fundraising programs. Her diverse industry experience includes producing complex, multi-day fundraising events (such as the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day and California AIDS Ride), organizational growth planning, project management and peer-to-peer fundraising. After hearing her 10-year-old niece, a two-season GOTR participant, loudly and proudly declare her personal “awesomeness”, something clicked and she knew where she wanted to focus her attention and experience. Bringing an intense belief in GOTR’s mission and a deep desire to see girls develop into confident, healthy individuals she is excited to be a part of this incredible, dedicated team."
Anea Bogue’s greatest passion is to see girls and women recognize the power they hold in their minds, bodies and spirits.
Anea believes,"If the adolescent girl were guided to recognize, celebrate and live the power that grows exponentially inside her as she enters womanhood and with each year that passes, she would likely give herself permission to honor that power, honor the journey she is on and most importantly, honor herself."
Most recently, Anea and her friend and business partner, Shelli Wright, are on a mission to improve the relationship girls and women have with their bodies… one tampon at a time.
But Anea and Shelli think differently. “At the most basic level, the menstrual cycle allows for the continuation of our species. Beyond that, it enables a woman to tap into her many and varied strengths. Why should anyone be embarrassed about that? When girls and women understand their cycle as a powerful force of nature, they begin to see themselves as the valuable, important beings they are,” says Anea Bogue, M.A., an expert with over twenty years of experience in the field of girls’ and women’s self-esteem and empowerment.
Anea joins the Girls in Power Radio Show again and she will share more details about “TrueMoon” and its mission.
Welcome to The Girls in Power Radio Show
Melinda Rae is interviewing Anea Bogue on today's show and they have a great deal in common, both understanding the importance of young girls self-value playing a huge role in their choices as they develop into young ladies and try to find their way...
A note from Anea.... From the time I began working with teens almost two decades ago, I was able to identify the girls functioning below their potential because they were struggling with their own self worth and identity. I became determined to be a mentor and guide who would help provide these girls with the motivation and the permission to be their very best selves.
Melinda is excited to interview Michelle Steele on the show
Trish Steele is the founder of Safe Passage, an organization that provides help to women who are victims of domestic violence and their children.
Trish will be introducing her daughter, Michelle Steele, fashion designer, script writer, actress, poetry writer, volunteer helper for other charity's, graphic designer, story writer, and artist.

Melinda Rae interviews Howard Crampton Jr. during this episode of the Girls in Power Radio Show. This is taken from Howards website from Howard's website.... Do you want more control over your emotions to improve your relationships and life situations? The quality of our lives is determined by the quality of the emotions we experience regularly! We can blame external circumstances all we want, but when it comes down to it, there’s a level of responsibility we must accept in every situation – Our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Moreover, it’s the meaning that we attribute to our situations that makes them worthwhile or regrettable.
