Growing up, I was blessed to have parents who instilled a strong sense of self worth in me. As I got older, this allowed me to truly appreciate the traits, beyond my appearance, that made me unique and I took pride in that.
Looking back, I would tell my younger self to boldly embrace every trait that makes me #prettyunique and not shrink back from being my best and true self. With social media, and the images of beauty associated with it, being such a big part of younger girls lives these days, it can be difficult to truly embrace your self worth.
I'm glad to know that the children's book PRETTY is tackling this conversation. As an added bonus, a portion of the proceeds will go to support @GirlsInc. Be sure to visit www.theprettyconversation.com to learn more and let me know what you wish you could tell your younger self (or a young girl in your life) about self-worth in the comments below.
