Thema Campbell is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Girl Power.
She is a champion, an expert in children’s issues and a true advocate for young girls.
Thema’s passion for assisting those in need came from her grandmother, Hattie Skinner Bacon (Mama Hattie), who opened up her small home to family, friends and strangers in need. Most of all Mama Hattie’s home served as a safe haven for children who were lost and trying to find their place in this world. Thema founded Girl Power on this same principle. She saw that the same challenges that faced young girls of yesteryear are still prevalent in the young lives of girls today, and girl power opens new doors for them.
In addition to her duties at Girl Power, Thema is also the executive producer of the annual “It Takes A Village Conference;” she serves as executive board member of the Miami-Dade Youth Crime Task Force; she’s a member of the Liberty City Community Action Agency; and a member of the Sojourner Truth Book Club.
