Did You Know?
"Low self-esteem is killing girls’ academic success around the world" — The Washington Post
Only 1 in 3 girls with low self-esteem are confident in having a successful career. This low self-esteem drastically reduces the likelihood of girls to follow ambitious career paths.
A lack of confidence is found to detrimentally affect females not just in the classroom, but in the workforce as well. Women represent only 5% of CEOs of the largest companies in the U.S. A cited reason being a “lack of confidence”. While women have the competence to compete for top-level jobs, often their confidence is the factor holding them back.
The problem starts in adolescence, when girls' self-esteem and confidence nose dives. And as shared by the U.S. Department of Education, "girls often experience deeper self-doubts than do boys".
The great news is that this is a trait that can be reversed with action.
eGirl Power works with teen girls to fix this problem and empower girls to improve their confidence, self-esteem, and achieve their full potential.
Self-esteem surveys completed by girls in the eGirl Power program showed gains of up to 20% improvement in self-esteem

"Amy Mintz is a nonprofit founder and an educator who incorporates MI in her lessons as a means to improve students' self-esteem and performance
. She has also drawn upon MI to create a book about superheroes entitled MI9 Team."
-- Dr. Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education
"The challenge for youth is to feel as smart as their peers and that they have the chances to use this intelligence. This is especially true for youngsters who lack encouragement where and how they live. Discuss Amy Mintz's new book with youngsters and let them recognize the super hero in themselves
-- Allan Luks, Founding Director of the Center for Nonprofit Leadership at Fordham University
"This is a great way to introduce the concept of multiple intelligences. I really enjoyed reading the bios of each of the super heroes and super villains. It has a lot of good information about the different multiple intelligences and how you can use your strengths to overcome challenges. It's a great positive message for kids and really anyone who doubts their intelligence or wants to know more information about it.
-- Nicole Mahool, Dean of Students at Urban Assembly School for Global Commerce
The MI9 Team's message that our diverse talents make us unique, and that our weaknesses by compensation can be turned into strengths is very powerful... As an educator, Amy did an outstanding job, because readers with deficits in memory can recall this information by remembering the characters.
I love the book! Required reading for any Character Education class."
-- Maria Santiago, M.A., LDTC, Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant
"9 Bad Ass Super Heroes inspired by the Theory of Multiple Intelligences & each driven by a personal Social Cause... a total recipe for a HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER!
-- Alexander Smith, Film Director/Producer, Uber Entertainment Ltd.
