GIRL IMPROVED’S FOUNDING MEMBERS
These four girls helped found and develop Girl Improved. Not only did they participate in the inaugural theatrical program, they were instrumental in starting our social media, creating art and graphics, developing content and being the face of Every Girl for the organization.
Lisi is eleven years old, and her dream currently consists of becoming a cat. She’s not very shy anymore, and she likes to write, read, eat chocolate, sing songs, dance, and generally be awesome. She doesn’t always talk a lot, but her friends say she’s one of the funniest people they know. Lisi is a supreme geek, and also an avid artist. She loves her sister and the arts, and she enjoys performing Shakespeare and other plays.
To sum her up in a few words (which is nearly impossible, but it will be attempted here): Chocolate, writing, cats, craziness, tea, and laughing at life because it’s awesome and should be thoroughly enjoyed.
A fifteen-year-old aspiring writer, Grayce secretly lives at Hogwarts part of the time. Her bountiful creative ideas frequently outshine her emerging people skills. Both, however, will prove invaluable as she has a go at directing and producing. She finds Girl Improved to be supremely awesome and will challenge anyone who says otherwise. She also advises: her writing is for the fearless. “Prepare to be entirely disturbed.”
Liliana’s favorite things are Shakespeare, revolution, and chocolate. As a writer and an actor, her imagination may kill you, in which case we apologize in advance. She’s also one of those crazy liberal hippie people who thinks everybody killing each other is a bad idea, unless it’s in a play. Then it’s just entertaining.
BONUS! Bragging Rights:
Ran up a down escalator and has battle scars to prove it. Shares a birthday with Bilbo Baggins, Frodo Baggins, AND Joan Jett. Can run in high heels, up stairs, and skip steps.
Double Bonus! Favorite Shakespeare Quote:
“Villain, I have done thy mother.”
Zia is a daring, intelligent, happy
eleven twelve year old who has a zest for fashion, hair and makeup. She takes great delight in spoofs on fairy tales, like “Once Upon a Time” and “The School for Good and Evil,” especially when the girls are strong and independent. When she was nine, she finally talked her parents into adopting a dog from the shelter. When she was ten, she started her white dove release business. She has a great penchant for laughing and finds humor in most any situation. Most of all, Zia loves to act; she has been in numerous Shakespeare plays and several musicals.
- Zia plays roller derby and can’t wait til she turns 12 and can try out for the All Stars. Update: Zia is now 12 and is trying out for the All Stars this fall! Wish her luck!
- Zia sews matching outfits for her dog and herself.
- Thanks to a sponsorship by Game Salad for ImprovEd Shakespeare, Zia is learning to make apps.
- Zia is an excellent cook.
