We held a camp with girls from different districts of Malawi. On the second day after introducing Free Being Me, the Image Myth and body confidence we could hear the girls shouting in corridors ‘Free Being Me,’ and ‘I am pelele.’ One girl said  ‘I didn’t believe I was black and beautiful. I felt shy and couldn’t speak out… now I have confidence. Free Being Me!’
