About the Founder

Amy Mintz founded eGirl Power/Project Pay It Forward, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to bring awareness to Gender Equality and support Girls' Education. eGirl Power's goals are to empower girls to improve their confidence, self-esteem, and achieve their full potential. Mintz oversees all operations and affairs of the nonprofit organization and programs, including the annual Youth Leadership Summit, educational workshops, "Career Day" field trips, Junior Council, mentorship and more.

Mintz serves as the Gala Chair of her organization's PIFA Awards Gala, held at The Yale Club NYC Grand Ballroom. The PIFA Awards Gala recognizes and honors outstanding individuals who have dedicated their lives to giving back, and celebrates paying it forward and inspires others to take action. This special event raised awareness and support for eGirl Power and awards distinguished honorees including Loreen Arbus, Allan Luks, Dr. Stephen Post and more, and featured Rita Cosby as the Emcee, Beyonce's protege Sophie Beem as one of the performers, with numerous celebrities and notables in attendance.

Amy Mintz is the Best-Selling Author and Creator of the MI9 Team series, which she started working on in 2013, inspired by her experiences growing up overseas in different countries around the world. She has dedicated all proceeds from MI9 Team: Unity Among Differences to Girl Power in support of the organization's mission to bring awareness to Gender Equality and support Girls' Education. The MI9 Team is about female-led superheroes who join forces for social change. Each member of the MI9 Team member represents one of the nine multiple intelligences: verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, musical-rhythmic, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalistic and existential. Mintz was recently featured as Guest Writer by Dr. Howard Gardner on his Official Site of Multiple Intelligence. (Howard Gardner is the developmental psychologist and Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education who developed the Theory of Multiple Intelligences). Her blog, Using Multiple Intelligences Theory to Understand Your "Superpowers" discusses the effectiveness of the multiple intelligences to increase self-esteem in youth.

As Founder of the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, she has successfully led several past programs of the organization, including Project Pay It Forward, which inspires the youth to make a positive change by applying their special skills, unique talents and passions to make a difference in their community. This nationwide program reached youth in 40+ states throughout the country, and provided educational curriculum, resources and grant opportunities to support the youth.

Other past programs include Student Body TV, which educated the public on America’s challenges with college affordability and its impact on the youth. The Student Body TV program provided several opportunities and resources for individuals faced with the challenges of unaffordable higher education costs and student loan debt, including several scholarships offered by the nonprofit organization to support students in achieving a higher education. Another previous program, CrowdFundEDU, supported students, educators, schools and organizations to raise funds for educational purposes through a crowdfunding platform.
