Dress to Express
"Purple is a color that represents happiness and calmness; I feel all of these things when wearing purple. I dress to how I feel- If I feel sporty, I will wear very sporty colors, but the point is [that] I don’t dress to impress others; I dress based off of my own feelings. Never change your style because of what others think is cool!"
- Anelyn Gomez,
An 11-year-old Dominican-American girl
Parents– it's important that we teach our young girls to be self-confident, expressive and bold. We need to teach them to proudly represent themselves in this world full of scrutiny and peer-pressure. Young women need to know that it's ok for them to think for themselves, embrace uniqueness and firmly stand for the good and godly things they believe in. Parents, even something as simple as allowing your little-girl to dress herself to her own taste is conducive to raising a strong and independent woman.
