ABOUT THE FOUNDER
A proud native of Guyana, Cloyette Harris-Stoute is a strong believer that girls need great role models from whom they can draw inspiration so she created the Guyanese Girls Rock Blog to highlight the accomplishments of Guyanese women and girls across the globe. Her desire to transform the world through service led her to establish Guyanese Girls Rock Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to empowering Guyanese women and girls to create their own paths to success. In 2018 she launched the Young Women Leadership Academy; a Saturday leadership program in Queens New York for high school girls from the Guyanese community.
With Cloyette as its driving force, the Guyanese Girls Rock Movement has become a source of pride for many in the Guyanese diaspora. Her motto “You are more than enough, you were born to rock!” is a reminder to women and girls to know their own worth and to be change agents in their communities and beyond.
