Near and dear to Amy's heart is a program she crafted for Step Up Women's Network called "Photojournalism for Girls"/the "I Dream to..." Project which for five cycles taught over 400 underserved teen girls in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York the skills of photojournalism as a tool to meet with the very woman they dream to be. Images were distributed in Self Magazine, NBC News covered a story on the program, and Getty Images hosted a gallery show for the girls at it's Varick Street Studio.
