Girls Retreat: teaching positivity and looking ahead
After the UrbanPromise International Summit we held a retreat from our girls with Ms. Sio, director of the Urbanpromise Camden Wellness Center. It was heartbreaking to hear the girls share how the people surrounding them in their community and even their own families and friends contributed to lowering their self-worth, but also beautiful as we learnt that together we can reverse that. We can be the ones who pour out positivity unto each other and the younger generation coming after us. We watched them rip up papers they had written on who they were told they are and draw pictures representing who they are and want to be.
