I AM CONFIDENT Mini Retreat

TEACHES GIRLS SELF-PROTECTION.

Our best defense is a great offense, and our best offense begins by trusting ourselves and knowing that we are enough. Daily messages of “You aren’t smart/popular/attractive/athletic enough,” leave many girls believing they truly aren’t enough. Self-protection is a daily practice but we must know how to implement it. When we believe we are unworthy, there isn’t a defense system that will protect us. The I AM Initiative teaches the basics of self- protection while also guiding girls to self-esteem, self-responsibility and self-care. We tackle bullying,drugs, trusting your intuition and the power of believing in yourself through movement and interactive exercises. Dress in active wear.

Our desire is for young women to embrace their lives as worthy endeavors, their personal safety as the highest priority, and know they make a noteworthy difference in the world. The I AM Initiative retreat has three foundational principles: THINK FEEL ACT.

GIRLS LEARN THE POWER OF KNOWING WHO THEY ARE.

THINK: I AM STRONG

What you think is what you are. The first rule of I AM is: F.L.Y. (FIRST LOVE YOURSELF)

GIRLS LEARN THE POWER OF TRUSTING THEMSELVES.

FEEL: I AM CONFIDENT

In uncomfortable scenarios you will trust your gut and follow the second rule of I AM: FACE YOUR FEARS, RUN AWAY FROM DANGER

GIRLS LEARN THE POWER OF USING THEIR TALENTS TO HELP SERVE THE WORLD.

ACT: I AM POWERFUL

What you do is intricately connected to what you think and how you feel. The third rule of I AM is: BE POSITIVE CHANGE.

Lisa Van Ahn


Lisa Van Ahn is a professional boxer, kickboxer, and American Ninja Warrior contestant. She realized there were many things she didn’t have the opportunity to learn as a young girl to ensure her safety so she created the I AM Initiative; a confidence building curriculum girls and young women. The purpose is to teach the necessity of self-love in relationship to personal safety. Through dynamic movement and engagement Lisa’s workshops teach the “rules” of self-protection, including self-compassion, trusting your “gut”, and creating positive change in the world.

Lisa is passionate about teaching girls the principles she didn’t have the opportunity to learn until later in life. It is her deepest desire to give these young women the tools to be strong, in middle school, high school, college and beyond so they are able to confidently overcome the obstacles they encounter throughout their life.
