10-year-old Jessie assisted with a white shark necropsy and then returned to school to present to her entire 4th grade class about her experience and what she learned. 16-year-old Julia went to her old Junior High to speak about how kids can start pursuing a career at any age by volunteering in shark conservation efforts, scuba diving, or by attending lectures and events to learn about the career. These were all things she has been able to participate in as a Gills Club member. The club has helped to develop knowledge of sharks for our members, as well as confidence.

Girls who were once being told that sharks are for boys now have the knowledge of female scientists they can reference, shark facts they can share, and the ability to discuss all of those things with confidence.

Princess Awesome and Girls Can! Crate offered a special Gill Girls Giveaway in honor of the Gills Club, an education initiative of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, and all the amazing girls out there with a passion for elasmobranch science. Thank you, Gills Club, for empowering and supporting budding shark scientists!

Entries to the giveaway included sending in a picture of an awesome Sharks Girl. We are so proud to be able to share those terrific photos with you here! Thank you so much to everyone who entered!

I Built That in a Dress

June 29, 2020

This quarantine business is not easy for me. I am not good at sitting still or staying home, so I’ve had to find ways of doing both of those things over the last few months. I ended up (like so many other folks) doing some home improvement, and I found the perfect piece of clothing for all my projects - my Princess Awesome super twirler dresses! They’re super comfortable, light and airy, make me feel confident, and the huge, deep pockets hold all my tools and hardware.
