Our History

Girls En Motion "GEM", is a Meetup group operating out of Dallas, TX, since February, 2014.

This group was founded by Shaniqua Epps, a Dallas native, who wanted to create an environment, where like-minded young women could join together and start the process of developing new friendships, and bonding, through traveling adventures, in order to help clear your mind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Are you looking to meet other mature young ladies, that are able to get up and go? Are you tired of wanting to go, but not having anyone to go with? Are you interested in going out of the country, or traveling within the states? How does a weekend get-a-way, in-town staycation, outdoor concert, or ballet sound to you? If these are some of your interests, just as they are mine, this is definitely the group for you.

Membership Dues: Although not a requirement, there is a $10 annual membership contribution that is suggested in order to help maintain the monthly fees associated with the use of Meetup, as well as for fees paid to FastDue in order to process payment invoices, other fees for our travel website, and other materials/supplies need to run an effective Meetup.

Also, as an added bonus, members who choose to donate will become an "Elite member". This means, you will be invited to exclusive trips/events planned just for you, as well as other perks. Become "Elite", and click here to chip in your contribution today!
