Dove Self-Esteem Weekend/TODAY Show

Hey Everyone! Long time no update! Threads for Teens has been going absolutely amazing. A couple of weeks ago, a three minute segment on Threads for Teens aired. I was really excited to finally see this air, because we started filming it in July in New York. Then, in the middle of August, several producers came to finish filming the segment in California at the boutique. I would like to give a big thank you to Paige, who was kind of enough to tell her story and how Threads for Teens personally affected her. Thanks Paige! Here is clip in case you missed it.

Then last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the kick-off event of the Dove Self-Esteem Weekend, where Jess Weiner, Dove Global Self-Esteem Ambassador, led a workshop on confidence to preteen and teenaged girls. I was fortunate enough to be able to have a conversation on stage with Jess about self-esteem and the connection to Threads for Teens. I actually first met Jess several years ago at a young women's conference where she led a similar workshop, so it was really incredible to see her once again after several years to update her on how Threads for Teens has grown. Make sure to check out her WEBSITE, as there are many great tools for building self-esteem. Also, I had the fortunate pleasure of meeting Kid Chef Eliana, who curated the menu. The food was amazing and I really wish I had her cooking skills!

Lots of exciting events in the work!
Stay tuned!
