About the Founder

Avni Singh is an Austin High School graduate and entrepreneur who is on a mission to shift the normalcy of online sexual harassment, specifically boys asking girls for nudes and girls feeling pressured to comply. She is also a dancer, a filmmaker, and a Chapstick connoisseur.

 

From teaching three of her friends in third grade a Bollywood dance for the annual talent show, to building a business that empowers teens to inspire cultural change in their own community, Avni loves adding and hearing new voices in a conversation. Her business, Girl Alliance, reflects this desire, as shes strives to help teen girls assert themselves in the dating world. 

 

On the lighter side, Avni enjoy making music videos with her cousins, eating tacos, and kayaking. She is currently a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

An Idea is Born

 

Driving back from the mall one cloudy day in Austin Texas, Avni Singh was describing to her mom the dilemma many of her friends faced when they were sent the dreaded question: send nudes? Some of Avni's friends liked the boy who asked for their nudes, and therefore struggled between possibly losing his interest (by not sending the nude) versus keeping his attention (by sending the nude). Many of her friends didn't know how to decline the request in a witty way and others felt uncomfortable saying no because this is what teen flirting is these days. Asking for nudes as flirting, Avni realized, had become normalized. With the support of WIT, Avni created Girl Alliance to empower and encourage girls to collaborate with one another in order to make educated decisions about boys. 

 

Since that day, Girl Alliance has grown into a cultural movement inspiring a shift in flirting culture and girl confidence among teens everywhere.  

 
 

The Problems

 

Lack of awareness around online sexual harassment among teens

Girls don't know what to say when a boy asks for nudes paired with lack of confidence/community support to say no

Schools lack easy and effective systems to report sexual harassment

Boys (and girls) normalize nude requests as flirting in high school

Girl Alliance Solutions

 

We are solving these problems by...

1) spreading awareness of online sexual harassment among teens through our sticker campaign, social media, and teen ambassadors,

2) providing an (online and offline) confidence-building community for teens to share personal and receive professional advice on how to deal with online sexual harassment, and

3) developing a one stop experience for teens to report harassment to their school counselor.
