SPARK Ally of the day: Dr. Carla Stokes

I am a health educator, life coach, speaker, and founder of Helping Our Teen Girls In Real Life Situations, Inc. (HOTGIRLS) ®, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health and lives of young women and girls in underserved communities through health education, leadership development, and media education. I am also developing books, products, and curricula inspired by my work with youth and research on the impact of sexualized media on young women and girls coming of age in the hip hop and digital generations. I am adding my spark to this exciting movement because it is my personal mission to inspire young women and girls to embrace their true worth and overcome societal pressures that hold them back from achieving their greatest potential.
