Free Program for High School Girls focusing on personal development and empowerment
For too long mass media in the form of fashion magazines, movies, television, Photoshop and almost every modeling agency on the planet have defined what is beauty is. In this class, we’ll talk about the influence mass media exerts and dispel some of the methods they use to control the message. We’ll talk about real beauty and participants will get a chance to use Microsoft Fresh Paint to create a one-of-a-kind take home project!
Embrace Your Own Beauty (EYOB) - Developed especially for High School Girls. An innovative and interactive teen workshop series, theStitch combines a message of empowerment with the magic of Microsoft for a powerful state-of-art experience that has the power to change the world - one girl at a time, from the inside out. Co-facilitated by dynamic women leaders in the St. Louis community, the series serves as an antidote to the toxic pressure that girls feel every day to conform to the "norm". Our goal is to empower teens to embrace their own beauty while giving them the opportunity to delve into technology, boosting their confidence in their ability to change the world. theStitch believes that educating, encouraging and empowering girls will make the world a better place for all.
