How did you hear about Beautiful You? What made you decide to come?

I heard about Beautiful You from Rebekah P. I really liked how open everything was, how I felt comfortable to talk about anything in my group.  I also liked how I felt completely comfortable to open up with my leader too. I enjoyed all the skits and activities as well. My favorite part was Random Acts of Kindness. Our group bought a bunch of roses and gave them out to people. When we would give them to people it would make their day and they would smile and in turn they would make our day.

How are you now taking what you have learned and impacting those around you?

One thing I took away from the weekend was that God made us perfectly who we are and God doesn’t make mistakes. And if we are saying that we are ugly or something then we are saying that God didn’t make us right. If I see someone with their head down or not as confident it makes me want to reach out and help them cuz I’ve been there.
