Committed to Making a Difference
My name is Tamara Barkley. I am the founder of G.E.M.S ( Girls Emotionally and Mentally Strong) and the author of the " G.E.M.S Journey Guidebook" that many of you have already had the opportunity to complete ( if not.. What are you waiting for? Grab a copy and get to reading!!! There are some great stories, activities, tips and tools to help you begin your journey of self love and understanding of who you are and want to be).
So who am I and why did I write the book you ask? Well the truth is I am a woman who at one point was "You", a young woman trying to navigate through life, understand who she was, gain confidence in herself, understand how to juggle lifes ups and downs, all while trying to maintain my sanity. I'll admit at times it was hard, but what helped me make it through those tough times was understanding my worth, owning my confidence, and accessing my power. I was able to love myself and accomplish my goals and I want to help "You" do the same.
My goal and the goal of G.E.M.S is to help you begin to develop confidence in yourself. To know and understand that you are created with purpose; and to value yourself enough to expect respect and settle for nothing less. You are a Girl Emotionally and Mentally Strong...so OWN IT!!!
