We Celebrate Mayim Bialik!

Mayim Honorary Go Girl

If she had just stopped at Blossom, that would have been enough to make her an Honorary Go Girl!  Remember Blossom?  She was fun and bold.  She spoke her mind and wore those amazing hats.

But, no.  She didn’t stop there.  She grew up to get her PhD in neuroscience, become a mom and leading advocate for attachment parenting, and created the beloved character of Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory.  At Go Girls! Camp, we used to sing, “I can be more than one way.  ‘Girl’ can mean a lot of things.”  So often, girls are encouraged to be smart OR pretty.  To like science OR art.  We are all complex human beings with many interests and talents.  We must encourage our girls to explore all their interests and teach them that being a Go Girl! means saying yes to all parts of yourself.  Mayim is an incredible role model for this message.

Please take a moment to watch this video with your daughter.  You’ll be glad you did.
