Who is She Is You?
She Is You is a social enterprise that seeks to promote female leadership and empowerment of young women aged 18 - 30 years through the provision of workshops, programmes, and events.
She Is You was founded in 2012 by Caroline Odogwu and Yinka Oyebade after seeing a lack of visible positive female role models whilst studying at University.
Our Current Impact
With over 2000 followers on social media, more than 1000 unique monthly website hits, over 14000 DFS campaign digital screen plays in the Wandsworth area, we have impacted society in many ways. At She Is You, we believe in the power of using stories to inspire and encourage young women of today and have already impacted so many young women in schools, colleges, universities across the UK. One of the most successful ways that the power of stories has impacted others is through our popular Dear Future Self (DFS) programme. The programme consisted of 5 weeks of wholesome conversation with female role models such as Zenovia Grant, Camille Johnson and many more. A highlight of the programme was the practical application where participants were challenged to write a letter to their future selves.
What is the project about?
We are aiming to raise £2000 over the next 6 months to help with obtaining resources to host more events and workshops, broadening our advertising, increasing our social media presence, and securing aspirational female speakers for future events. Will you help us?
As part of this we will also be using the funds to print more copies of our Dear Future Self workbook, giving us an opportunity to distribute free copies into schools, which will enable more young people and the next generation to think about their future options and make better informed decisions for their lives.
