jGirls Magazine Collaborations

jGirls Magazine is proud to collaborate with an array of partners to bring the voices of diverse girls and women beyond our core demographic. Please join us as we share, learn from one another, and lift each other up.

Emanuelle and her mother, Shana, discuss how they work together to bring positive change to our world.
