Our troop enjoyed this fun “Free To Be Me” project. We got to discuss how girls our age should feel about themselves in a positive light. Now in the media we are told that we have to live up to society’s standards of beauty. We have to have the perfect makeup, clothes, etc just so we can be “beautiful”. When in reality you don’t need to be anything but you to be beautiful in your own special way. We as girls should feel that it is our duty to break this image myth, to stand up for ourselves and others who feel that they have to live up to this myth. We learned that we don’t have to follow this myth and that we can be beautiful in our own unique ways. We all need to love ourselves just the way we are and no way else.
