It’s time for girls and women of all ages to come together and make a difference in each other’s lives. We’re happy to have to influential canadians join the BeYou movement. Hear directly from them why this campaign matters and why we need you on board.
Director and Film Maker
I’m so honored and excited to share Dream, Girl as part of the BeYou campaign this fall. I hope when young women watch Dream, Girl they know and feel how powerful they really are. That they don’t need permission to follow their dreams- they just need the right role models to show them it’s possible. Dream, Girl is a film whose sole intention is to inspire you to take that leap and follow your heart- I can’t wait for you to see it.
Marketing and Communications
Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada
Big Brothers Big Sisters could not be more proud to partner with Morguard to say to girls and young women in this world how important it is to just BeYou!
As women of any age we have many mixed messages and competing expectations to navigate in our lives, and BeYou is a beacon of light. Just like our incredible female mentors across Canada, BeYou reminds us we are strong and capable and wonderful exactly the way we are, and gives us the confidence to achieve our dreams.
Personally, and professionally, I am so proud to participate in a project that supports my sisters across Canada and encourages a new generation of women to believe in themselves. ‘All you gotta do is BeYou!’
Canadian Singer / Songwriter
They say that timing is everything. And the time is now for Tara Shannon. She had some unfinished business. Twenty years after the singer songwriter was discovered she is releasing her album, Unfinished. Tara has always had a profound passion for music. From a young age she was singing, songwriting and playing multiple instruments. In 1997, her strong vocal abilities and songwriting artistry on her first album won the attention of famed Canadian singer songwriter Alanis Morissette’s parents. Alan and Georgia nurtured Tara’s development which then led to a record deal offer. But the timing just wasn’t right. Tara and her high school sweetheart Dan had three young children which was not very conducive to touring life. So she shifted her focus and entrepreneurial skills to building the TIF Group of Companies together with her husband. It services the transportation industry and is one of the biggest employers in Prescott-Russell in Ontario, Canada where they live with their now 7 children.
Erin Cebula has been a fixture on Canadian TV since landing the coveted role of Community/Arts Reporter for BC’s #1 station in 2000. Her compassionate approach to entertainment reporting has graced the likes of Vancouver talk show Urban Rush, Canucks Pay-Per-View and HGTV Canada’s feel-good hit, Makeover Wish. Erin has been the West Coast Correspondent for Entertainment Tonight Canada since 2005, a gig that allows her to do what she does best – laugh, explore, and engage with the biggest names in entertainment. This former farm girl and undercover jock is also an active advocate for the BCSPCA, the Spokesperson for BC Children’s Hospital Lottery and the proud new Program Ambassador for BeYou.
Erin will be on location for several launch events, will appear in the BeYou video plus provide extensive social media involvement. We believe Erin will connect with both the mothers as well as the girls that our initiative is geared towards and ultimately will encourage girls to get involved in this positive empowerment campaign.
Go Girls Coordinator
Go Girls Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds is the exact program I needed when I was a young girl. In my adolescence I was awkwardly shy, uncomfortable in my own skin and had completely convinced myself I was ugly and dumb. When I think back I remember how badly I wanted someone safe to talk to about my problems, but I never got the opportunity.
Go Girls is a place where girls can be themselves, confide in one another and talk through their issues without fear of judgement or ridicule. We create a safe space so they can discover who they are and what they are truly capable of, which in turn gives them self-confidence and the ability to believe in themselves. I have no doubt that every girl will benefit from participating in Go Girls, and I’m proud to be a part of such an amazing program.
