Girls Embrace Your Body
Presented by Pump It Up
Message from the creator, Stacey Godbold.
When Team Project Reveal started planning the Embrace Your Body event for adults, we felt it was critical to have something specifically for girls. The feedback we received from parents was encouraging.
We need to start these conversations early. The journey to embracing your body shouldn’t start at 20, 30, 40. And what we are hearing from parents who have signed up is that this is something that is definitely needed. We need to teach our children from the very beginning how important it is to not only to love themselves but to also respect themselves.
The event featured 24 age appropriate images of area women and girls of all sizes, ages and ethnicities — as well as a photo booth, refreshments, positive body image activity by national organization Her Space Inc. and Dr. Danica Wilking as guest speaker.
Wilking, an OB-GYN at Women’s Healthcare PC, talked about girls embracing their changing bodies. Her message was about being comfortable in their own skin and even though your body may be different than another girl she said, “Yes, your body is ‘normal.’ Yes, your body is perfect!”
Our goal is to promote a positive body image and more self-confidence for our area girls so they can become women who embrace and love their bodies.
Thank you to Pump It Up, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Her Space Inc, and Dr Danica Wilking!
