STRONG. The Magazine for Girls, a quarterly print publication aimed at empowering and inspiring tween and teen girls, is celebrating its first birthday by making issues 1-4 available in digital format free of charge in a Summer Reading Special.

The brainchild of founder, editor, and publisher Sarah Beach, and headquartered here in Wilton, STRONG was first conceived in March 2017 and launched after a successful Kickstarter campaign in the summer of the same year. STRONG aims to boost confidence and self-esteem in middle school aged girls with articles about strong female role models as well as ordinary girls doing extraordinary things.

STRONG regularly focuses on:

  • Girls and women working in STEM fields and other non-traditional roles.
  • Girls around the world making a change and doing good
  • Maintaining a STRONG Body and a STRONG Mind with regular contributions from our nutritionist and our clinical social  worker
  • Girls growing up in other countries and cultures
  • STRONG female role models
  • Practical skills such as mending a puncture in your bike tire, installing and maintaining smoke alarms, and getting stains out of clothes or furniture
  • Life skills such as personal finance, time management and kitchen knife skills
  • Ordinary girls who have battled adversity
