Show us your POWER POSE!

Your body language tells people a lot about you. Some people even believe the way you carry yourself can change how your body functions. Power posing has been buzzed about since it was mentioned in Amy Cuddy’s influential 2012 Ted Talk. It can be, she explained, a powerful tool for success.

Girls Rock Columbia believes your power pose has the potential to awaken your self-confidence and inspire others to see the superstar within!

Says Executive Director Mollie Williamson, “We’re teaching the campers that they don’t have to apologize for holding their body confidently, and that it’s essential for them to make room for themselves in their communities.”

What is power? Is it defined by competition and domination, or is it something more? There is power in collaboration. There is power in vulnerability. There is power in celebrating those around you. For marginalized populations especially, there is power simply in daring to take up space in the world.

The very act of planting our feet and saying, “This is MY stake in the room/crowd/community and I BELONG here” is a defiant one–and needs to be engaged in daily.
