The Girl on Purpose Project: Marzeta Bodden
I do my best to live out loud in the space where work, life, service, and exploration (food, travel, people!) intersect. I love designing the strategy that makes ideas happen for and with big thinking people and organizations, and they love how I pull together pieces of a future vision into an actionable plan when we work together. At the end of the day, what they really get is clarity, focus, excitement, and energy. Because, I’m more than just a strategist. I’m an activator and shift-maker. Making ideas happen is hard work and is totally worth it because as I create for and with others, I also enjoy creative freedom, connection, and fulfillment for myself along the way. I want to live in a world where self-defined success is achieved, giving back is a way of life, and every day is treated like a holiday, every meal like a feast, and every paycheck like a fortune.
The Girl on Purpose Project is powered by an eBook that’s more than just an eBook. Girl on Purpose is a collection of 52 passionate and powerful essays to uplift and inspire, and created in support of girls' education. Girl on Purpose engages your heart, mind, and dollars in support of girls’ education. Sixty percent of proceeds - $12 from each eBook sold - supports two champions for girls’ education: She’s the First in their mission to educate and empower millions of girls, and the longstanding, worldwide basic education and literacy efforts via Rotary District 7020.
As an additional benefit, purchasers of Girl on Purpose get this eBook containing powerful and passionate essays from 50+ contributors: writers, entrepreneurs, artists, coaches, accountants, lawyers, teachers, athletes, mothers, daughters, sisters, friends from around the world. The essays are inspired by the 52 universal virtues that are accepted around the world, across multiple cultures and religions. Within each short read, the contributors share thoughts and truths that readers can enjoy insight and inspiration at their leisure with the knowledge they’ve done some good for the world.
Girl on Purpose is created with heart, honesty, and with hope that our collective effort will support girls' education, get more girls in school, and give them the opportunity to reach their potential. Has $20 ever been so powerful? One eBook. One mission. One powerful stand for equality in education.
