The 2018 Girl Conference
With invitation from Project Beautify You, Inc, EYE founder, Diane, presented “EYE am She” at the 2018 Girl Conference. During this presentation, young girls learned approaches for achieving mental wellness, particularly related to college preparation, and focused on topics such as identity, self-advocacy, acceptance, self-esteem, resilience, healthy relationships, depression, and anxiety. The workshop engaged girls in discussions about mental health using interactive activities and self-assessments and increased their awareness of available local resources. The girls were able to understand the value of using positive affirmations, utilizing positive outlets, and identifying resilient strategies to overcome personal and social challenges to help ensure successful transition to college.
