In charge of the Leadership group, I spent the day talking to these girls about anti-bullying. We all opened up to each other. I told them ways I was bullied as a kid, even as an adult. They told me what they experience every day in middle school. I tried to point out to them that, despite all our different bullying scenarios, one thing is constant: the pain you hear in all our voices when we talk about it. We are all the same. We're all girls who want the world: happiness, good friends, a dream job, someone who loves us, and most importantly...I think we all want to love ourselves. I reminded them that in order to achieve ALL of this, we need to surround ourselves with people who let us be, and love us for, our authentic self.
That's just some of what we talked about at the retreat. You can get more info and see more pictures here. Thanks for stopping by the site, everyone. Chat soon.
