I am so thankful and excited that you’re here. This blog is my way of saying I believe in you and am here for you during this very important transition in your life. So it’s an honor that you’re choosing to bring us along on your journey to college. There is so much helpful information that has been prepared to help you get ready for college.
Before we get to that here is some info on what you can expect from this blog.
My hope for GMG is that it will grow and evolve each year to serve you in the best way possible. You can expect honesty, positivity, encouragement, inspiration, guidance and of course, tons of helpful advice. There will also be some great surprises down the line. I wish I could tell you but then it would not be much of a surprise would it?
This blog is specifically for girls heading to their first year in college. It’s very fitting to be a part of this now, in order to be well prepared and help you maximize your college experience. I will be covering all kinds of topics having to do with college life. The topics vary from time management and budgeting, to proper health and personal relationships. There will be posts about friendships, roommates, dating, safety, studying, internships, style, careers and so much more.
You can expect a new blog post every month and every now and then there will be a special edition blog. I know how busy you are so I don’t want you to be overwhelmed with e-mails. Therefore, each blog post will be as short as possible and it will contain helpful advice. In addition some of the posts will include attachments you can download, to help you apply what you learn.
One important thing to mention is that only positive, kind, respectful members are welcomed in this group. Don’t say anything you wouldn’t tell someone in person and if you don’t have something nice to say… well you know what to do. My goal is to build a strong and supportive community full of positive energy. Follow GMG on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter for inspiration, advice, giveaways and much more!

Welcome to the Girls Mentoring Girls blog!
My name is Yadi Filipiak, and I’m the founder of GMG, a space created for you to receive support, advice and encouragement through mentoring.
The reason I started this website is because my students, especially girls would naturally come to me for advice and I realized there was an important need to share fundamental knowledge.
