008 | The Strong Movement: Strong Body + Strong Mind = Strong Girl | with Ailis Garcia

This show is all about female powerhouses – and today’s guest is nothing short of that title! My dear friend Ailis Garcia is changing the game for young women across the country with her program The Strong Movement.

Ailis is creating a complete culture shift, travelling to different college campuses to inspire young women through movement, sisterhood, positive psychology, and self-love. I’ve watched her take this from idea to complete domination in just a few short years and I’m so proud of everything she’s about!

Ailis makes me feel like I can do anything – and I know this episode will do the same for you!
