The theme of the We Inspire Girls to Be Strong Women 2018 high school tour — 'How big are your dreams?' — is a message of hope that speaks to the power of knowing what one wants and using that as the foundation on which to create limitless dreams and ultimately achieving success.

Now in its fourth cycle, We Inspire Girls has been hosting emotional intelligence workshops in high schools across the island since January 2017.

The 2018 cycle, which runs from September 2018 to April 2019, and aims to cover approximately 16 high schools with the message of inspiration, kicked off at Ardenne Extension High School in St Andrew on Friday, engaging girls in grades 7 – 9 on the importance of dreaming of a life better than the one they have now. The speakers, Felecia Williams, marketing executive at JMMB; Cortia Bingham, CEO We Inspire Ltd; and Naomi Cowan, singer/songwriter gave riveting speeches on their life's experiences and how they have used the art of dreaming big to achieve success. The girls were moved to tears at times, as some of the stories resonated with their current situation.

Other workshops planned for this year are scheduled for Wednesday, October, 3 at Oberlin High School in West Rural St Andrew; Tuesday, October 9 at Dinthill Technical High School in Linstead; and Wednesday, November 7 at BB Coke High School in St Elizabeth.

Partners of team We Inspire for 2018-2019 include The Jamaica Observer, Foska Oats, Nestlè KITKAT, Nutramix, Lasco Curves, iCool Water, Clean & Clear, Elle & Vire, and The Drink Real Milk Campaign.
