Girls Like Me, Inc. was founded by Elisa Wiah in 2007 when she was just 17 years old. GLM started off as an interactive online magazine where girls could have a haven online that provided positive images of girls and women like themselves.
In 2012, GLM took root in Philadelphia, PA through philanthropy when Elisa held GLM's 1st Annual Doll Drive, a holiday toy and gift drive. Soon after, she decided to take it a step further and held her first event, College Prep 101, to prepare girls for college life. Since then, the purpose of GLM has consistently been to help young girls by providing group mentoring and resources. We want to help girls accomplish their goals and empower them to lead holistic lives.
As Girls Like Me, Inc. continues to evolve, Elisa's hope is that GLM will be an organization that specializes in providing exceptional group mentoring events and a media platform that encourages girls and women to dream worldwide.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity that provides free and low costs group mentoring experiences for girls (ages 11-18).
We are encouraing all girls to Go & Dream.
