My First Ever Post!

My First Ever Post! Dear every member on this website, I just want to say how happy I am that somebody finally had the idea to make an incredible website like this. I think it's nice to know that you can get advice from girls that have walked in your shoes. I struggled with friends trying to control me and I felt like I didn't have a voice at all, but I found a way to cheer myself up. I really love drawing fashion and writing has always helped clear out my mind. I love my hobbies and all, but I think this website is answer to a lot of things I might be going through. All I want to say is that I am grateful for all of this and thank you for making a difference and helping us girls!

Spotlight: Girls Get Hyperlinked!

This summer, we are teaming up with Spotlight: Girls to inspire girls to create their own media Spotlight: Girls' mission is to educate, inspire, and activate girls to take center stage in their own lives and in their communities. Go Girls! is not just a summer camp.  It’s a movement.  At Go Girls!, rising first to sixth grade girls make plays, art, music, and media that we believe will change the world. Throughout their camp this summer, girls will be creating media inspired by our new YouTube Red Original series, Hyperlinked! You'll get to see all the videos these awesome Go Girls! create here on Miss O & Friends! We know not everyone can make it to the awesome Go Girls! camp (**if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, check out their camp programs - there might be a few spots left!) BUT we hope you are inspired by Hyperlinked and encourage you create your own content too. You can submit it here on the Miss O site or post it on social media using the hashtag #GetHyperlinked. We can't wait to see what incredible things you girls create! GO GIRLS!  Hyperlinked premieres May 31! The series will be available through Disney’s YouTube channel as part of the Disney Digital Network. All viewers will be able to watch one episode for free while the remaining episodes will be available exclusively for YouTube Red subscribers.  Check out the official trailer here! 

How a Teenager Turned Doodles into a Successful Business

At age 16, Juliette Brindak started a popular tween website called Miss O and Friends. Then she learned the hard way that there are ups and downs not just to growing up but also to growing a business. While traveling home from a family vacation, Juliette Brindak, age 10 at the time, entertained herself by drawing pictures of her 5-year-old sister Olivia and her friends, whom she referred to as “the cool girls.” Those drawings would become the inspiration for Miss O and Friends, a website that Brindak launched in 2005, and where, today, some 1 million girls go each month to find a sense of community on its thriving message boards. On Miss O and Friends, girls “socialize, play, create, exchange ideas and compare experiences,” through games, articles and more, says Brindak. The site also offers programs that let girls enter fashion design contests and gain internship opportunities. “Our main goal is to provide a safe place online to empower girls, so they can realize that they aren’t alone, and that they don’t have to grow up too fast,” she says. That formula made for a flourishing website during its first few years — until 2014 when a major site renovation brought major trouble. Amid a mismanaged transition, Miss O and Friends’ traffic plummeted from a peak of 3 million monthly visitors to one-third that number. “It was definitely frustrating, but I was confident those views would go back up,” Brindak says. Shooting for the Stars Brindak, who is now 28 and a recent newlywed, remembers all too well how it felt to
