"I've noticed a curious thing. When you give a women a microphone... she's afraid to be the most powerful voice in the room. This fear stems from girls being conditioned to silence their voices and when you silence your voice, you silence your power. By the time girls become women, it's engrained into who we are. As a music teacher, I've noticed that when teens perform together, boys will confidently mess up and get louder, while girls will quietly mess up and often become completely silent. We live in a world that teaches girls to be perfect, not powerful. I've learned that when you create space for girls of 8 or women of 48 to confidently turn up the volume on their instruments, they'll find power in ALL aspects of their lives."
