Lots of music reviews take special note of "females" in bands or "all female" bands. While we think being a woman in a band rocks, it'd make some happier to be noted primarily for our musical talents and passions not JUST by our gender. If you feel this way, say so with a t-shirt! Proceeds go to Girls Rock Athens!

Suncana Pavlic is a 17-year-old senior at Clarke Central High School. She became involved with Girls Rock Athens last year to help found the Girls Rock Athens Youth (GRAY) Board with friend and fellow volunteer Jordan Rhym. Suncana’s role includes helping to organize events, contact performers, manage social media and run the website for the Board. Currently, she is juggling her work with the GRAY Board with her role as the Senior Visuals Editor at Clarke Central’s ODYSSEY Newsmagazine and her internship with Dr. Thomas Mote, a climatologist in the University of Georgia’s geography department. Suncana is helping him with a long-term ecological research project in Puerto Rico. Next year, she plans to go to college for environmental science and says she will “continue to compose my own music and stay in touch with the amazing things Girls Rock Athens is always up to.”
Become a sustaining donor
At Girls Rock Athens, we believe that youth deserve a space to develop and use their voice through performance and song writing. After just one week, 80% of campers express confidence in their ability to handle challenges as compared to 57% before camp begins. Your continued support is instrumental to providing a space for youth self-empowerment in the Athens community.
