Saturday, October 7th I had the pleasure of hosting #HappySelfLoveSaturday for some of the most phenomenal 13-16 yr. olds from my hometown. We engaged in an afternoon of learning how to embrace and love yourself sponsored by Curls.
The girls spent the morning with a power talk from myself on how people who bully you words aren’t a reflection of you but a reflection of them. They also journaled, created D.I.Y body scrubs and had the pleasure of meeting Jordine creator and founder of Nature’s J.E.M. Jordine talked on her self-love journey growing up as an Afro-Latina and how her hair journey helped her find her new business.
After lunch Shanti and Jennifer owners of Diva Fit Club in Vineland, NJ lead the girls in an hour long yoga session. For some of the girls this was their first time doing yoga but definitely not their last.
Lastly the girls heard about my self-love journey and did the exact same exercise I did to help with my rebirth. There were tears of saddens and happiness but everyone felt refreshed and brand new. Before leaving each girl got the chance to write themselves a love letter which will be emailed to them on Valentine’s Day.
