Alexis Jones        

Female Empowerment Activist & Author, "I Am That Girl: How to Speak Your Truth, Discover Your Purpose, and #bethatgirl"

Alexis Jones is an all-American, southern belle, Texas tomboy. She grew up in Austin (with four older brothers) and moved to Los Angeles where she completed a Bachelor's degree in International Relations and a Masters in Communication Management, both from the University of Southern California. Alexis discovered her passion for inspiring girls and women after starring in "The Vagina Monologues," a progressive women's play written by Eve Ensler. Following that role, she hosted a TV show on the Red Carpet, worked at Fox Sports, ESPN and was a contestant on the hit CBS reality TV show Survivor. Leveraging her entertainment background as a platform, Alexis launched I AM THAT GIRL, and quickly became an internationally recognized speaker, media personality, activist, and author.

She has established herself as a thought leader for the twenty-first century women's movement and as an expert on Generation Y. Her authenticity, contagious passion and "straight talk" style, have made Alexis a trusted voice for her generation.

Recently invited to the White House to discuss a Healthy Media initiative, Alexis and the I AM THAT GIRL team are trailblazing the women's empowerment space with a savvy, inspiring twist. Alexis has spoken to more than 100,000 youth in person and more than a million people on-line regarding personal and professional development, leadership, activism, social entrepreneurism, and women's issues. Recent lectures have included the United Nations, Paul Mitchell, Girl Scouts of America, NASA, Pepperdine University, and Auburn University among others.

Alexis's first book, I AM THAT GIRL, was released in January 2014.

Speech Topics


Dreams to Reality: Pursuing Your Passion at All Costs

Be That Girl: Modern Girls on a Mission

Today’s expectations of beauty can leave many girls and women feeling like outsiders. However, Alexis Jones wants to redefine the meaning of “beautiful” and ignite an empowering revolution for females that will help them see themselves in a different light. This inspiring talk reveals the reality behind many of the images women see in the media and explains the pitfalls of relying on outside appearance as a measurement of self-worth. Instead, Alexis encourages girls to look inward for purpose, value, and power. What does it mean to be a powerful woman? How can you find strength in your imperfections? How can you use your unique voice to lift up other women instead of tearing them down? Alexis will answer these questions and teach you how to be that independent, confident girl who dares to lead other women into changing the world.

Leading with Passion: Trailblazing in the Twenty-First Century

“You wake up everyday, and you choose your attitude.” This is just one of the many invigorating mantras of Alexis Jones, who believes that, with the right mindset, nothing is impossible to achieve. By encouraging a brave step outside of their comfort zones and taking bold moves to overcome fear, this talk inspires audiences to destroy their former ideas of “success” and discover fresh approaches to finding their own prosperity in the new millennium.
