Stories say so much about us—they’re a way to express our interests, hopes, and dreams. So it’s important that girls get the opportunity to tell their stories through the range of creative approaches highlighted in the It's Your Story–Tell It! Leadership Journey, made possible by a grant from the Dove Self-Esteem Fund.
This Journey explores important themes such as developing a strong sense of self, discovering the benefits of a balanced diet and physical activity, navigating healthy relationships, identifying ways to enhance self-expression, and promoting well-being and confidence in others.
Activities and discussions woven into each level get girls thinking critically about the media, including its portrayal of girls and women. The activities are designed to promote age-appropriate discussion on topics including marketing tactics aimed at young consumers, the media’s narrow definition of beauty, and the portrayal of relationships between girls and women.
