Campus Ambassadors represent the Girl Talk Institute to their college peers by engaging in the mission of Girl Talk and sharing it through regular storytelling Coffeehouses.
“A Campus Ambassador is someone who understands. Someone who understands that life is full of unknowns and what-ifs. Someone who understands her own faults and works every day to embrace them. Someone who understands that being a woman is difficult and hopes to be a pillar for other girls to lean on in their time of need. Someone who understands that vulnerability is not a sign of weakness. Most importantly, a campus ambassador wants every young woman embarking on her own personal journey to understand that she is ENOUGH.
My time as a campus ambassador has been flooded with self-discovery, endless love, and joy. After hosting my Coffeehouses, I get the opportunity to speak and connect with so many incredible women. Sharing intimate moments from my life can be a nerve-wracking experience. However, seeing other girls take positive steps after hearing my words confirms that the Girl Talk Institute is changing lives one campus at a time. I feel extremely blessed to be a small part of something that has such a vast and important impact.”
—Emma McCoy, Girl Talk Campus Ambassador 2017-2018

“I Girl Talk because every woman has a truth and every woman deserves a warm, loving, accepting place to share that truth and to discover the truths of the women who surround us every day. The more we realize that we are not so different from one another, the larger our community will become, and we will continue to strengthen our inherent dignity as women.”
