What is your position at Smart Girls? I am the University of Kentucky Smart Girls Campus Representative. I heard about Smart Girls on a blog that I follow. There was a link talking about the positive impact Emily Raleigh, the founder, was making because she formed an online community called The Smart Girls Group. After reading their mission, I knew it was something I had to be involved in. As someone who believes that women can do everything men can, and wanting women to break the stereotype of a woman, the mission spoke to me.

How did you get the position of UK’s representative? I applied for this position after contacting Emily and asking how I could help, how I could become a Smart Girl. She told me that she was launching a new program specifically for college girls where one girl would represent their university by writing a blog, creating a twitter, and trying to get the word out about Smart Girls.

Many people don’t know about the group; how would you describe Smart Girls? The mission of Smart Girls to inspire girls to embrace their smarts, and not be afraid to shine. We aim to help girls become more educated in topics ranging from politics, to health, to fashion. The well rounded girl is something we want our followers to aspire to be. In return, we ask that our followers share their smarts around the world and give back to their communities. We publish an online magazine once a month, along with specific university blogs. The Smart Girls Group started when Emily, a native of New Jersey, sat down to write her little sister a survival guide to high school and growing up. She got to thinking that more girls should try to be the best versions of themselves so on January 1, 2012, Emily created the Smart Girls Group.
