Saturday 07.17|Topic- BEAUTY Unrealistic and unhealthy body expectations, including "ideal" sizes, weights, abilities, and physical attributes influence girls' understanding of what is beautiful. Body image, or how one views one's own body, is an essential element of self-esteem.
Saturday 08.21|Topic- WAYS TO COMMUNICATE Communication is what we do to give and get understanding. Successful communication occurs when there is understanding. Teaching the girls to communicate effectively helps them to maintain healthy relationships, resolve conflicts peacefully, and excel in school.
Saturday 09.18|TOPIC- CULTURE IS EVERYWHERE Girls will be taught the meaning of culture and how it plays a large role in individual identities. Helping them to recognize cultural influences all around them helps them to better understand themselves.

As much as we build Queens from the inside it's also important that we step outside of our shell and ENJOY as well. The "Living MY Life like It's Golden" photoshoot is to promote self-esteem, unity, diversity and a celebration of Queens coming together and being their OWN kind of beautiful.
