About this story

Name: Bringing out the ‘Body Talk’
Troop name: Legra 10th Leigh-on-Sea Rangers

As a Peer Educator I attended the ranger unit to complete the Free Being Me Programme in their meeting hall. Whilst there the girls were very good at responding to the questions asked and gave very good opinions about how they saw themselves and how they could change those perceptions of themselves. Many of them liked the quick come back activities as it taught them how to respond to friends outside of the meeting place and taught me that this part of the session was very valuable. Since visiting the unit I have seen the girls leader who has said how much the girls enjoyed it and how they have used the phrase ‘Body Talk’ to each other whilst in the meeting place and at camp to stop others from talking about their bodies negatively which is a huge achievement for these girls!
