New Date TBA for the
San Antonio’s 1st
Health and Wellness Expo
Girls in the 3rd - 8th grade
and their families!
We’re new-ish, so let us introduce ourselves.
iGrow Girl is here to encourage girls to learn who they are and be fearless in being the best authentic versions of themselves. After raising two daughters of her own, Karen Howard Lee, founder of iGrow Girl and author of It’s Good for a Girl to Know Who She Is, recognized a distinct struggle among tween girls. The culture, the media, and everyone else constantly tell girls who they should be, how they should act, and what they should like. In the midst of all the noise, when do girls step onto the life-long path of exploring and deciding for themselves who they will be? When does a girl begin to learn who she is (her personality, likes, dislikes, gifts and talents) without the outside influences? iGrow Girl believes that time is NOW, which is why we’re dedicated to providing workshops, workbooks, and other tools that are aimed at nurturing girls’ self-discovery, health, and wellness, and encouraging strong mother/daughter relationships.
So, here’s the thing. Self-discovery is wonderful--no doubt! But when a girl learns to practice self-care while being true to the amazing unique person she is, then she will be super-powered and unstoppable! That’s why we’ve made this year’s expo theme… (drumroll, please): “But First... Self-Care Inside and Out.”
Here’s what that looks like:
Lots of exhibitors and speakers who offer mental/emotional and physical health and wellness services and resources for girls and their families. Giveaways, prizes, live performances by local girl troupes, fun photo booth and more. Food available for purchase.
We're planning two major content components:
Exhibitors in the areas of sports, fitness, nutrition, healthy habits and lifestyle, stress relief, mindfulness, creativity, healthy relationships, and healthy online habits.
Open Space sessions that consist of informal panel discussions in an open setting. The sessions will be enlightening, but also short, sweet and interactive to keep the tweens moving. Open space sessions give presenters a chance to engage with girls and their families.
Our Panelists are fierce professional women who are passionate about their work with kids and families:
Grizelda M. Anguiano, MD, PLAY Awareness and Mind Works
Kristen McKenney Baggett, Executive Director, Yoga Day
