Meet Deb Preston!

Cover of children's picture book with girl in yellow dress and purple boots with title Girls Can

Girls Can inspires girls to feel accepted and included in exploring diverse interests while feeling confident to do so. Deb wrote this book as a homage to her daughter. She noticed there weren’t any books she could buy to encourage her daughter to feel empowered when participating in activities that were stereotypically for boys.

This book supports girls in embracing their differences and finding strength in their connectedness, which is one of Girls on the Run’s core values.

Deb believes girls should be able to feel confident in what they like and shouldn’t have to pretend to like “girly things”. 

Here at Girls on the Run Bexar County, we want to support and share this message with all of you! To purchase the book you can visit the Girls Can Shop.
