Especially Me! is an interactive class designed to teach 5th grade girls the skills they need to be happy and confident, to make good decisions, to be assertive, to express themselves, and to have a strong sense of self. The goal of this program is to instill the idea in each girl that she is unique and special and that she can take control of her own life!
“I think this class is great. I have very low self-esteem. I’ve always thought I was ugly. I always thought I was fat and never ‘perfect.’ It was never easy especially when my mom and dad said I had bad skin and was ugly. That always brought me down. I can start rebuilding my self-esteem again.” Maria, 2009 Especially Me! Participant
“This is just a big THANK YOU!! to all of you. My daughter attended the event on Saturday and she was soooo excited and happy, she said they (the volunteers) were the nicest ever and made her feel comfortable talking about things. I can’t express in words how much I appreciate what you are doing, we are looking forward to your events in the future. You are really making a difference in our girls!! For that I am grateful for organizations like yours… Keep shining!!”
