Good Morning NHA ,
Yesterday, Jonaya, Jazmyn and Madison collectively launched their Be
Your Own Beautiful Movement (BYOB), which is a continuation from Jonaya’s project last year.
The purpose of the project is to support girls with learning how to love themselves by defining beauty by their own terms (this is what actually led Madison to chopping off all of her hair during break). This year they are focusing on being trained on motivational speaking, workshop facilitation and tabling at events to get the word out about their movement.
Yesterday, the 3 of these young women hosted a BYOB reception for their mothers, father, aunt, grandmother, sister, cousin and nephew. During the event, they shared their personal stories and struggles as young women. Tears were shed, laughs were had, gratitude was extended and new and tighter relationships were formed within EACH of their families. It was truly a remarkable experience and one I will NEVER forget.
If you see them feel free to congratulate them!
