If you are a fan of comedian and actress Amy Poehler, you will want to check out her awesome Youtube endeavor, The Smart Girl Channel.
The channel’s motto is “change the world by being yourself!”. It is dedicated to inspiring young women to feel comfortable with who they are, and it also educates teens about people from all over the world who have overcome obstacles or achieved great success. You will find links to Amy’s favorite Youtube videos and a playlist of cat-themed music as an entertainment bonus.
“Here at Smart Girls, we believe that the cultivation of the authentic self is very important. We also believe that guidance is helpful as we try to find our way to ourselves. We hope to be of help in the exploration and discovery process.
This is where you might learn about something you would like to experience. You might learn about a woman you’d like to emulate. You might learn a new perspective or an unfamiliar custom or a new way to talk to yourself about something.
It is our hope that you will learn more about your truest self.”
