Editor's Note This journal is designed to ignite action and cultivate courageous conversations between girls, women, and all who love us.

Dear Leader,

I am grateful that this journal found you and that it is making a new home in your leadership library.

I often remind my students that writing takes courage. It is not always easy to be vulnerable and share our stories and our truth with others. I hope that this journal ignites courageousness in you— that you're inspired to fill the blank journal pages with your most authentic self and share your truth confidently with the world. Thank you for reading this book. More importantly, thank you for being you.

Our founder, Joy Lindsay, launched Butterfly Dreamz after losing her younger sister, Kimberly Anyce Lindsay, to gun violence. The vision started as a desire to turn Joy’s pain into purpose and preserve Kim’s legacy. Today we are much more: We are a 501(c)(3) organization that partners with community organizations, schools, and businesses to serve and employ young women. We are a network of resources that supports middle and high school girls in achieving their dreams and becoming leaders. We are a movement that inspires girls to live boldly, dream big, and fly high.
