According to a study by AC, Nielson, seventy-five percent of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like body cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking or disordered eating. This compares to twenty-three percent of girls with high self-esteem. With your help, Project: BECOMING can make sure the girls of our community are less likely to be associated with these startling statistics. While we know this is a daunting yet rewarding task, we also are aware that it takes a village to raise our youth. Can we count on you to be a part of the village to evolve shy, insecure and vulnerable girls into the confident, knowledgeable, and resilient women of tomorrow? If you can find it in your heart, could you help us make a difference?
