Girls today are facing insurmountable pressures to be successful, thin, popular, beautiful, and good at everything. Girls today live in a stressful and competitive world of eating disorders, cyber bullying, “sexting”, and “micro-celebrity”. Girls have more choices now than ever before and their lives are moving at an exponential pace, most likely a factor in increasing symptoms of anxiety and depression. There is a clear need to help girls slow down in order to create space to reflect and connect with themselves, NOT the false or idealized sense of achievement, popularity, and perfection they see all around them or feel they “should” be. Girls who don’t know who they are, look outside of themselves for definition. They turn to perfectionism, drugs, alcohol, academics, eating disorders, compulsive exercise, and relationships to find a sense of belonging and purpose. Life can feel out of balance and anxiety producing for these girls! Through Bold New Girls, girls can learn that they have value and worth, they matter, and they can make a difference in this world. And, they can embody a sense of well-being and happiness.
