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.
