My quest for teaching self-confidence began when my daughters reached the age when my negative self-talk started to show up —in middle school. I noticed some of my daughter's friends making negative comments about themselves. I could remember making similar comments about myself, when I was their age. Having decades of perspective made my heart truly ache for these young girls. I remember very clearly the intensity of those awful feelings towards myself and I am passionate to help young girls by teaching them all I have learned.
