Young girls need a strong hero who isn't worried about how the world defines them. They need a female character who will help them understand and appreciate their power. After reading a story to her young niece about a young girl's dream of wearing high heels and fancy dresses, Donna was reminded that girls need a shining example of the spirit within them - a spirit that is too often limited by the shallow expectations of a world that dims their light. In Glitter Girl, Donna S. Highfill shares a story she's carried in her heart inspired by characters like Pippi Longstocking and Jo from Little Women. Donna spent her early years being rough and tumble, and like Glitter Girl, was watched over by a special flock of birds during a time of illness in her young life. Glitter Girl is a reminder that every girl is born to shine. Donna Strother Highfill is a published author of Real People, Real Change: Stories of a Change Warrior in the Business World.
