Super Girl Guide Series
In 2011, I created and launched a nonprofit for girls called Severson Sisters. We were an empowerment organization for girls with a mission to inspire girls to live their lives as their awesome, authentic, super self.
I gathered up a team of advisors and together we wrote a series of workbooks called the Severson Sisters Super Girl Guide series.
These workbooks were taught in schools around the country. Our workbooks appeared in afterschool programs, community centers and community organizations. Thousands of girls learned the importance of healthy communication as a fundamental tool that will help develop, enhance and deepen their relationships with other females.
We have three workbooks in the Severson Sisters Super Girl Guide series. Each workbook is 108 pages and contains creative activities, thought-provoking questions and a journal. These workbooks were written to an 8th-grade reading level and are best given to girls ages 10 – 14.
