ABOUT THE FOUNDER
I’m Grace, I’m 23 and have launched The Empowerment Project this year in Birmingham.
I feel extremely passionate about providing confidence-based empowerment opportunities for women across the regions and strive for a more supportive culture to exist among women. I wanted to incorporate this platform for women who share similar challenges in improving self-esteem, self-love and confidence.
At 16 I was accepted to train full time as a dancer but having never been ‘skinny,’ growing up, I didn’t quite fit the dancer physique expectations that existed at that time and still do today. I soon decided to leave and suffered a huge confidence knock which has affected me ever since. I really wanted to provide an opportunity for women to grow and become empowered through dance and fitness workshops.
I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2017 having studied Law and like most other helpless grads, spent a lot of time searching around for some inspiration as to what to do and where to go next. It can be a really difficult transition especially when you can’t find a career path that incorporates your passions. So I wanted to create a base for girls in similar situations as me, offer opportunities to learn about many of the challenges they’re facing and become empowered to overcome them! Whether you’re exactly where you want to be right now in your life or feel like you could use a little reminder of your potential - we can all benefit from a boost here and there and celebrate what makes you stand unique!
