Meet H.E.R. Crew
Hello, my beautiful friend...
Thank you for sharing your time with me. This movement wouldn’t be possible without girls like you showing up to our workshops and sharing your own vulnerability. For that, I am so grateful!
Growing up, my father always reiterated the following, “present choices determine future rewards”. One choice you didn’t have was that moment you came into this world; which we call life. It was evident, on that day and that moment, you were fearfully and wonderfully created; made in the image of beauty and light, nothing less. All of us who are able to spend this time with you, who know you, who love you, are rewarded. The world is better because you!
Along the way came life changing events. You may remember falling off your scooter, stains on your birthday dress, you asked for an omelette, you got scrambled – traumatic events, or so they seemed at that time. On the other hand, you may have experienced some events that shook your entire world. Maybe you lost someone close to you, experienced heartbreak, have fallen sick, or feel like some days the world is just crashing down on you. We face challenges that are mole hills, mountains, or even possibly, a simple school zone speed bump. However, you survived it! Although this mountain or speed bump in life may have slowed you down, you kept moving forward. How you respond to these adversities in life essentially shape and form the person you will be.
You are here and you have persevered through those mole hills, mountains, and speed bumps. You are a beautiful person, destined for shaping the world around you. As you evolve, you will continue to face challenges; some which may seem insurmountable. It is during those times you will be faced with a choice; will you stop at the speed bumps, or will you slow down, but keep moving forward?
I think I know the answer………After all, you are H.E.R.
With all my love,
Founder, I Am H.E.R.
Chelsea is a Mom, a feminist, a sister, and a friend. She believes we can take control over the messaging that has raised us and build a beautiful world led by powerful women.

An athlete, a motivator, and an influencer in her own right - trust when we say you can move mountains if Des is in your corner.
I am so excited to join the amazing I am H.E.R. crew. I have always had a passion for sports, especially advocating for girls/women in sports.
That is why I LOVE how this program is incorporating fitness. I believe physical activity helps us gain confidence, feel empowered/included, and creates a better understanding for mental wellbeing.
My career has me in the public eye often and with that come societal pressures and unwanted judgement. This has helped me learn to roll with the punches of life and I can’t wait to hit the ground running to share how important it is to stay true to yourself.
I want the younger generation to always walk away feeling inspired to exemplify the three pillars of “HER”. Hopeful- in not being afraid to step out of your comfort zone Equipped- with the confidence, knowledge, and strength to lead by example for others Resilient- to use personal struggles and societal misconceptions as a stepping-stone to a better version of YOU.
My name is Mia Olson, and I feel so grateful to be part of this program. I have been an inclusive education teacher with Regina public schools for 10 years, and I am a teacher advisor for Gender & Sexually diverse youth clubs.
I have had numerous mentors through out my life guide me during tough times, time’s of questioning, and hopeful time’s. I wouldn’t be where I am without them, so I hope I can provide a similar experience for the youth in this program.
Wow, I am so thrilled and honoured to be a part of I am H.E.R. I am a strong believer in the community and conversation that Kam has been able to ignite.
As women in today’s society we have a lot going against us, and that is why the LAST thing that we need against us is other women. For this reason alone, this organization and the work Kam has done is so essential.
It is helping to educate the younger generation of females that we are not each other’s competition, but rather each other’s biggest supporters. Hopeful: in what we can achieve, the strengths of others and ourselves, and overall change & growth Equipped: with knowledge, support, diversity, and positivity Resilient: in societal adversities & personal struggles.
As a future educator, I am incredibly excited to work alongside strong women with the common goal to inspire and grow with the younger generation!
I am a Dream Broker, business owner, and coach with a huge passion for creating strong communities through opportunity. Growing up sport was a big tool for me to have amazing mentors such as coaches or older teammates.
My goal as a mentor whether it’s formal or informal is to create space where individual talents can flourish. Whenever I have the privilege of working with students, families, or athletes I view it as a journey where sometimes I’m holding the flashlight and sometimes they are.
