Hello! My name is Sophia. I’m 14 and a Freshman at Cherokee. I love to hang out with my friends and go on vacation. I joined girltalk a year ago and ever since it’s been a amazing experience. Whatever problem you may have you will always find someone in Girltalk to help you out no matter what. It was usually awkward when I had to explain situations to adults or older girls but when I joined Girltalk it opened up how many people were going through the same thing! I now love being able to help the younger girls through the same things I went through!
My name is Isabella and I am a junior at Cherokee High School. I enjoy singing, reading, and working. When I was in middle school I struggled a lot with many different things, so being a leader allows me to be there for younger girls going through the tough years of middle school.
Hi! My name is Sammy and I am 16 years old. I am a Junior at Cherokee High School. I love spending time with my friends and family and going to the beach. I love being a part of girl talk because I think it is so important for young girls to have older girls that they can look up to in this tough time that middle school can be. I love helping people and making people laugh which is another one of the many reasons I love being a part of girl talk.
My name is Leah. I go to Cherokee High School and i’m a senior. I play volleyball all year round and love spending time with my friends. I love getting to know all the girls in Girl Talk and love building friendships with new girls. Getting to be a mentor has really taught me a lot and I am so thankful to be a part of such an amazing program with great girls. My goal as a leader is to be a good role model to the younger kids and help them through hard times. I went through a lot through middle school and still do go through a lot, which is why it also helps me to be a part of Girl Talk. Helping the girls helps me too and it makes it super easy to connect and talk with the girls. Getting to go to events and meetings is a blessing for me i’m so happy i chose to be a mentor!!
Hi! My name is Ashley and I’m a leader. This year, I’ve been lucky to be announced the Vice President of Girl Talk Marlton! I’ve struggled with a lot of drama and anxiety throughout my middle school years and the leaders always helped me. I would like to do the same for the younger girls. Im very passionate. I love music. I’ve been in musicals, performances and anything involving singing, dancing or acting. I can’t wait to spend my four years of high school as a leader!
Hi! I'm Macey, I am 17, and I go to Cherokee High School. I love to listen to music and go to concerts. I also have great friends who have been by my side for 5 years. I have worked at Pump It Up Marlton for a few months now. My family is very special to me and is always there for me. My middle school experience was very rocky with more lows than highs but the good moments really made up for it. I have so many great memories with my friends that we will always cherish but my home life wasn't exactly ideal. I wish I had some direction during those years because I think that would have really helped me. I look forward to being able to give others the same guidance I was missing in middle school.
Hi, my is Liz. I’m 14 years old and I’m a freshman at Cherokee high school. On my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends. I have been in girl talk for 4 years, and it’s helped me through hard times. Girl talk is like my second family, the leaders and girls made me feel welcome when I joined. Becoming a leader has given me the chance to talk to the girls and helping them through hard times. I can’t wait to get to meet new friends !!

Hey! My name is Maddie, I am a freshman and attend Cherokee high school. During my middle school years many things have changed, in my family life and my social life. When I found girl talk I found a place where I could escape from the world around me and meet new friends and do things with them that I loved. I have been in girl talk for 3 years and I love to go and sit on the beach all day long. Music is also a very big part of my life I listen to it non stop. Now that I have become a leader I cannot wait until I am able to mentor other girls that might be going through the same things as I was.
Girl Talk Marlton is thankful for its many volunteers and leaders who dedicate their time & talents to make our group so successful. Amazing professional photos below courtesy of ADC Photography.
Proud to be the mother of two talented artists, stepmom to two future baseball stars, wife of a handsome electrician and fur mom to a pack of puppies. My passion is inspiring others to help one another through kindness and love. After meeting Girl Talk Inc founder, Haley Kilpatrick, 7 years ago, I was so impressed with her mentoring program and wanted to bring this to my community. I started the Marlton Chapter and was able to grow our group to over 100 members. We focus on the struggles and issues that young girls today face, such as bullying, social media, lack of confidence and so much more. We also spend much time devoted to community service and helping those in need. I am very appreciative of all the volunteers, parents and leaders that donate their time to make our group so successful. Being a preteen/teen is tough and we are here to help, we are here to listen, we are here to assist them figure it out and get through every day with the least amount of drama possible. Join the family of Girl Talk Marlton and find out what we are all about.

My name is Jazmine, I'm 17 years old and a senior at Cherokee High School. I'm originally from Queens, New York. My family moved here when i was about 5 years old. I currently work at McDonalds in Marlton on front counter. I have two younger siblings and my sister Jada is actually the reason I got into Girl Talk. I had no one to look up to or ask advice going into middle school and it was tough. I was very shy and was one of the very few people of color which made me feel like the odd one out. I joined Girl Talk to give my sister, and other girls, what i never had... someone to look up to and talk to during this difficult time.
I currently work for PHH Mortgage in Mt. Laurel. I enjoy spending time with my friends & family. I have a daughter Nicole who is 12 years old and my life currently revolves around her. When we found this Girl Talk Chapter is was a blessing for both of us. We get to spend time together while giving back to the community by helping others and Nicole is making friends and growing her confidence.

I can’t wait to see what this new year has in store for the girl talk program , and I am estatic to be a mentor once again !
My name is Olivia. I am a sophmore at Cherokee. I enjoy playing soccer for Marlton Rec. Over the summer I worked at Triple A Summer Camp and there I worked with kids from 1st-8th grade. I had a tough time in middle school and I want no girl to go through what I went through. I will help mentor the girls through their tough times. Sometimes the girls can't talk to there parents or they don't want to talk to teachers at there school. So I want them to know that they can always talk to me.
Hi! I’m Norrell and I’m currently a GirlTalk leader. This is my first year of attending GTM and I absolutely love it! I joined this community of amazing girls to get to know people and help in my community, then I found out that I have a deep passion for helping girls who go thru or are about to go thru teenagehood. I love giving advice, helping others thru tough times, or being there for anyone in need of a shoulder to lean on. I also have an array of hobbies such as sports, music, and makeup. I’ve been living in Marlton for over a year now, but used to live in Pennsylvania where I’ve spent most of my childhood. It’s been an interesting experience moving to an entirely new state. Meeting new people and adjusting to a new school was quite an experience, but thankfully I made it through and now I’m looking forward to high school this year!
