Teaching young girls self-esteem in this social media era when self concept can easily clash with shallow notions is challenging.
One Bloomington group is helping girls build self-worth while off technology, so they know how to interact when they are on it. GLT Correspondent Maria Henneberry talked it over with LaKeesha James-Smith with the group 'Empower To Create' about an upcoming event designed to help.
It's the third year for the 'Young Ladies Tea' which happens Saturday November 12, from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M. at the First Christian Church in Bloomington.
'Empower To Create' plans events for girls and boys ages five to 18 in the Bloomington and Peoria areas.
