I was thirteen when the first Cheetah Girl’s movie came out and I’ll never forget how excited I was. They inspired us all to look beyond our insecurities and be proud to be a woman. We learned many lessons from the Cheetah Girl’s but here are five that empowered us the most.
1. Simply put…Girl Power
The Cheetah Girls reminded us of just how awesome it is to be a girl. They told us to believe in ourselves and to rely on the strength that radiates within us.
2. You don’t need a man to save you.
I found myself singing this song alone in my room on many occasions. I know I’m not alone when I say that the Cheetah Girls gave me another reason to love being a girl. They let us know that we have the juice and we don’t need anyone else to be amazing.
3. Sisters (real or not) stick together.
It’s an amazing time to be a woman right now, and it’s clear who runs the world. As women, we have to look out for each other and lift each other up. The Cheetah Girls taught us to stick together no matter what.
4. You have to be confident in yourself.
The Cheetah Girls reminded us that no matter who you are or where you are from, you have to believe in yourself. If you are confident in yourself, other people will believe in you too. They taught us to keep our heads held high and to kill it every chance we get.
5. Good girlfriends are hard to come by, so keep them around.
The Cheetah Girls taught us a lot about friendship. They taught us what it means to be a good friend through good and bad times. The Cheetah Girls were definitely giving us #SquadGoals back in the day.
