Hosted by Carlee Hopson and Callie Young
In this week’s episode of the Super Girl Guide Callie, Gabrielle, and Rinsley talked all about secrets in friendships. They talked about the difference between a harmful secret and a harmless secret. The girls picked power words for themselves and each other and explained just how they can be those power words. The girls talked about when you should speak up and tell a secret to an adult and when it is okay to just keep it between friends. The girls stressed the importance of not keeping a secret that can potentially hurt themselves or others. Callie, Gabrielle, and Rinsley asked each other questions from The Severson Sisters Super Girl Guide To Respect Workbook and talked about what types of secrets are okay to keep between friends. The girls ended the show with this week’s Super Girl of the Week, questions from girls in the community, and asking girls to submit their questions and stories to be featured on the show.

Carlee Hopson and Callie Young
Carlee Hopson is a 12-year-old Super Girl. She was born in Glendale Arizona in 2000. At a young age it was determined that Carlee had many learning disabilities that she would have to tackle throughout her life. She is severely dyslexic, has auditory processing issues and is ADHD. But she refuses to let that get in her way. She attended a few different schools and finally landed at an amazing school that has really helped her blossom. She travels an hour and a half to school one way and has to work all summer to maintain her reading level.
No matter what she is doing she is always smiling. Even though her learning disabilities could hinder her, she keeps going and looking at the bright side of life. She is a hard worker and very determined not to let her struggles hold her back.
Carlee’s first love is music. She enjoys singing and dancing and is a member of The Noise which is a youth performance group. She is very compassionate and loving to everyone she comes in contact with. Carlee has a passion for taking care of young children. She works at the nursery at her church, and helps teach Sunday school.
Carlee has also had the opportunity to be in some hair shows for Toni and Guy hair salon. She enjoys doing hair and make-up. She is very into fashion and having her own style. She is unique and loves it. There are times she gets teased at school for being "different" in her style but she just ignores their comments and continues to be herself!
Callie Young is an 11-year-old Super Girl in sixth grade. She’s full of energy and excited to co-host Super Girl Guide: The Radio Show with her friend Carlee.
Callie’s word to describe herself is fearless. That philosophy is what helps her when she’s dancing or singing in front of audiences. She is involved in show choir at school and in The Noise. She sings and competes in local Idol competitions and has also sung the National Anthem for the D-Backs and at Grand Canyon University.
Her passion for singing, dancing and expressing herself creatively has led to being bullied and standing up for her friends who are also bullied. Her peers bully her to discourage her in her performance art and bully her because she enjoys dressing uniquely.
Her fearlessness is tied to standing up for what’s right whether it’s involving her life or her friends life. She believes bullying is an issue that she wants to help with in any way she can. She hopes that bullying goes away one day all together.
In addition to singing and dancing, she loves to express herself in other creative ways. Callie acts, plays guitar, reads, writes and takes archery lessons. She loves photography, movies, and art as well.
Callie is a Super Girl in all that she does. She has a younger two-year-old brother and loves being an older sister. She strives to be the best role model by setting exceptional examples of kindness, courage, strength, and following her heart and dreams.
