Inspiration Icons female superhero characters empower kids

An original line of female superheroes

An original line of female superheroes

Creator of The She Shift LLC brand launched an original line of female superheroes called Inspiration Icons to empower kids. The characters represent diversity, empowerment and each character represents an important quality or value including: kindness, positivity, wellness, leadership, integrity, confidence and success/dreams and goals.


There are eight recently launched educational videos featuring the characters. One video is an overview of all the characters, and there’s a three-to-five-minute video for each character as well. Each character video includes a description of the female superhero, a lesson regarding the quality or value that she represents and an activity.

In addition to the videos, there’s an activity worksheet for each character that correlates with the activity in each video and a Certificate of Achievement for children as well.


The purpose of the characters is to represent diversity, empowerment, and to teach and instill core values and qualities in children in their formative stage in life. As we know, instilling these important qualities and values at an early age can have an impact on children into adulthood. Building confidence and a positive self-image for kids plays a significant role in the rest of their lives as well. These characters and videos are meant to educate, inspire and encourage young children.


One of the goals is to provide these resources to schools, youth organizations, foster cares, daycares as well as mental health organizations and counselors to utilize within their programs. The She Shift is also exploring the option of making these resources available for special needs children as well.

As a healthy initiative for children, The She Shift LLC is collaborating with HealthyMe Living, to provide a healthy snack box for children that is centered around The She Shift’s female superhero characters; Inspiration Icons.


Within each Inspiration Icons’ healthy snack box, there is a card with a photo and description of Inspiration Icons, a link to the educational videos and a promotional code for 10% off of the video rentals for Inspiration Icons. Each box would contain approximately ten snack items. The snacks include no artificial ingredients (food colorings, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, etc). The items are chosen based on the quality of the ingredients (organic, non-GMO, etc), nutritional benefit and taste.


The She Shift and HealthyMe Living are hoping to encourage positive physical and mental wellbeing with this initiative.


Information for female business owners is also listed on The She Shift’s “Services” page here.
