Back-To-School Contest
“Be Your Best Self”
9th-12th Grade Young Ladies 

Throughout elementary school and even up until high school, I did not have the greatest self-esteem or self-confidence and while it appeared outwardly that I did have confidence and high self-esteem, I really did not. Most of the time I was teased and bullied. However, I was able to champion adversities and become the best version of myself as I continue to grow and evolve. It is critical that young ladies are able to navigate through adversities into their purpose through self-image, self-awareness, self-expression, self-acceptance, and self-esteem.  It’s important that we recognize this in our young ladies through acts of mentorship.  Even if you don’t have a daughter, someone’s daughter looks up to you. So let’s make the greatest impact that we can.
