Our New Empowerment Book For Teens!

Friday, November 19, 2021


This is our second book, and while it isn't about skateboarding this time, it is definitely all about achieving some serious Girl Power!

Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word has always been about empowering girls, and since we can't be everywhere, this book keeps that momentum going. This journal encourages girls to be empowered, helps build their confidence, and shows them that together, we are stronger.
Written by Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word founder and 2016 Skateboard Hall of Fame Inductee, Cindy Whitehead, this journal has affirmations, prompts, creative activities as well as uplifting quotes.

We love that words of wisdom from strong female role models (selected by Cindy herself) are sprinkled throughout the book to offer girls even more guidance for their self-love journey.

The Self-Love Journal for Teen Girls is the perfect gift for every girl on your shopping list this season.

You can pre-order your copy on Amazon
