I can hardly believe that we are in month 8 of the You Go Girl project.  All I can say is time really flies when you are having fun and this amazing journey has been filled with a lot of  fun but it also has educated us , made us cry and most importantly inspired us to want reach even more women. 

In case this is the first time visiting my page or hearing about the You Go Girl Project.  About a year ago a local photographer Casey Brothers of Le Petite Studios  and I got together and discovered that we both had passion for empowering women and wanted them to feel beautiful despite the obstacles or circumstances they face . So we came up the idea of awarding local Fort Wayne women with a day of glamour that included a new wardrobe, style session , hair and makeup ,  a day at the spa and professional photo shoot. We not only wanted them to feel beautiful but we wanted to raise awareness for their issues and perhaps inspire another woman and let them know they are not alone.  We are were so fortunate that Women's Health Advantage one of the largest providers of Women's health care in Northeast Indiana believed in this vison and signed on to be our main sponsor.  We also had so many local businesses that support this project and make it possible we are so thankful .
