About the program

So Glad 2 Be Me programs are all about helping girls discover what makes them unique; based on who they are, not what they look like!

So Glad 2 Be Me was founded in 2003 in the small town of Arnprior, outside of Ottawa. The program continued to be run throughout Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley until 2013. It was in the fall of 2014 that So Glad 2 Be Me moved to Durham Region and more girls would have the opportunity to benefit from the program.

“The moment you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment you absolutely and utterly walk away”

– Allaya Harris

Empowering our children

Yesterday I learned my six year old niece does not think she is beautiful. I was heart broken and saddened not only because she is my niece but the fact she is ONLY six! Kids are sponges and she proved how vulnerable children are to the things they see and hear.
