You want to make a difference in girls’ lives. I know just how you feel.
The last 25 years of my life have been devoted to working with youth, but when I first began, I found that it was much more difficult to connect with them than I thought it would be. I wanted to help them face the issues and challenges that they are bombarded with, but it was overwhelming. I didn’t know where to start. It took many trial and error experiences before I learned what works and what doesn’t.
That’s why I created Just Be U, to shorten your learning curve.
If you are like I was when I started, you’ve tried to connect with girls in many different ways. Some of those ways haven’t worked very well though, right? At this point, some people give up or hope that a child will “self-correct” with time. The truth is, that without some kind of intervention, most will sink even deeper into dysfunction. Realizing this, I knew there had to be a better way. So, I started talking to girls.
What I learned was eye-opening.
Today, girls experience things that I didn’t; namely cutting and other forms of self-harm. But, their feelings of loneliness, insecurity, longing to ﬁt in, the pressure to be perfect, and the need to feel beautiful are timeless.
I know how to address those issues. That’s what makes Just Be U successful.
Just Be U leads girls through a journey of self-discovery to help them realize there are times when we all feel inadequate, ugly, and unworthy; and that underneath those self-defeating feelings, we all possess many strengths and abilities waiting to be revealed. Using Just Be U as a guide will empower you to reach today’s girls of every race, culture and socioeconomic class, changing their lives forever.
