Strive for Strength

Strive for Strength (S4S) founded in 2007 by Julie Ota and her daughter Tricia, is an organization administered by local high school girls and dedicated to empower, educate, and inform young women about personal teen issues such as depression, anxiety, self-confidence and body image. Each year, the S4S team organizes and hosts a one-day retreat for middle and high school girls, which features inspiration speakers, informative presentations, and interactive confidence building activities.
