Making Women’s History: How One Dad Is Helping His Daughters and Others Young Girls Do Just That
For a young girl, there’s nothing quite like spending quality time with Dad, working on school projects with him, hearing his voice cheer you on at games, and running into his arms for a big hug after a long day. For his daughters, Sanjay Nambiar is that Dad and then some.
Sanjay, who is an author, is raising identical twin girls. To inspire them and others, he created the Super Duper Princess Heroes, a global cross-media brand that empowers girls through a universe of diverse characters, glamour, social awareness, and fun! He launched the brand with the award-winning children’s book, “The Super Duper Princess Heroes: How It All Started.” Now it is expanding and will soon offer additional books, interactive stories, animation, games, toys, and more.
Through the Super Duper Princess Heroes, Sanjay hopes to inspire girls to cultivate the super hero within, as the brand slogan proclaims: “Be You. Be Powerful. Be A Super Duper Princess Hero!” By combining cuteness with strength, charm with independence, and fancy outfits with dazzling super powers, Sanjay hopes to motivate his daughters and girls around the world to:
· Have a strong sense of self, individuality, and pride;
· Cultivate social confidence and emotional intelligence;
· Identify with stronger female role models in children’s popular literature;
· Take care of themselves and the world around them; and
· Find their inner “Super Heroes”.
As the girl power zeitgeist continues to captivate our cultural consciousness, it is refreshing and important to hear support for the movement from men as well as Additionally, the brand’s website also spotlights several real-life Princess Heroes, which makes it a perfect fit for Women’s History Month!
