“Giving Women and Girls Wings to Fly”

The butterfly symbolizes change, transformation, comfort, hope, and positivity. I feel the butterfly must have great strength in order to fly. I wish all women and girls to have that same great strength. All of these traits can be viewed symbolically as ideas to assist humans to be more successful within their own lives. While we cannot fly, we can ensure that we don’t get stuck in what is too comfortable. o, like the butterfly our club is transforming, changing, and always hopeful. Working with positivity. Like the butterfly flitting and floating from event to event, from task to task. We will continue to work together to educate and empower women and girls.

Let’s give women and girls wings to fly!
