Are You 'Camouflaging' Without Even Realizing It?

When you hear the term camouflage, what does it make you think? We're not talking about rocking camo-colored boots or doing actual military drills, though this could be just as dangerous as the latter. Camouflaging means trying so hard to blend in with a certain group, like the popular crowd for example (hello, Mean Girls), that you lose your authentic voice.

Have you ever said something (or even more commonly, not said what you were really thinking) just to come off as cool or likable? Tween girls are particularly susceptible, but it can happen to otherwise smart and confident teens and adults as well. (In fact, Jennifer Lawrence just wrote about the cray feedback she received when she finally started using her voice at work, and she already has a slew of blockbuster performances under her belt.) The really scary part? It can take years to get your true voice back!
Wouldn't it be better not to lose it in the first place? Tia Girl Club certainly thinks so. Through their "Today I Am" campaign they are teaching girls how to use words to strengthen their voices, value themselves, envision success and pursue their dreams. (How #BUILTBYGIRLS is that?) Check out their Instagram, below:
But that's not all. They've also got a slamming kickstarter campaign to raise money to create the new Tia Treasure Box, a monthly major dose of of inspiration for members that includes a charm, a trading card, a letter from a Tia Trailblazer like NYC Ballet principal dancer Ashley Bouder, Red Bull Global rallycar driver Collette Davis or award-winning fashion designer Amy Smilovic and other fun surprises.
The best part about Tia Girl Club? Membership is free. You just have to follow Tia Girl Club on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Today I Am...excited to support Tia Girl Club and their kickstarter campaign.
