Women and Girls Lead: Nessa Higgins & Andrea Day Boykin

Nessa and Andrea met when their two children attended the same kindergarten class. They quickly found they shared some things in common: they were both foodies, they both wanted to own their own business, and neither wanted to risk making a big investment on a restaurant. They talked to us about their food trailer, Flip Happy Crepes, for our Women and Girl’s Lead: Austin project.

Women and Girls Lead: Austin showcases extraordinary women and girls in Austin who are changing our community. Combining independent documentary film, television, new media, and global outreach partnerships, Women and Girls Lead amplifies the voices of women and girls acting as leaders, expands understanding of gender equity, and engages an international network of citizens and organizations to act locally and reach out globally.

Do you know a woman or girl who is making a difference in your world? Someone who embodies the characteritics of leadership or empowerment? She could be a teacher, doctor, student or mother. Nominate a Leader today!
