I am pleased that the Island Girl Power (IGP) strives to ensure that their mission of providing positive alternatives for young ladies is effectively upheld. There’s no doubt that IGP empowers its members, encourages them, and inspires them to be confident in their efforts to succeed, which ultimately discourages teenage pregnancy, suicide, substance and sexual abuse. As stated in the organization’s website -, “We are compelled to speak out against Alcohol Sponsorship of Family & Youth Events and Negative Images of Women and Girls in the Media and in the Community.” That’s doubly wonderful! Way to go, IGP Director, Juanita Blaz, and her volunteers, sponsors, and of course, members! Enjoy the following poem written by an IGP member, who is grateful for her experience:


Island Girl Power
Oh how I love it so!
Just learning valuable skills
Just making cool friends
Just being myself and knowing that I can make a difference
Has motivated me to soar for success
Because I’m an Island Girl with Power!
Tamuning, Guam

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE: Island Girl Power is Da Bomb!
