What a joy it was to be the opening speaker at the Ignite Girls Conference this morning in my city.
The room was filled with 14 and 15-year-old girls learning more about themselves and how to create a community with each other.
I took them on a journey of giving themselves permission to be #InstagramUnworthy.
We discovered how they could begin diving into learning and loving their own gifts and talents and the letting go of any social media that doesn’t support who they are becoming.
I watched their faces change (some with horror) as I revealed to them the influence their "feed" is having on them learning to build their own self-esteem and confidence.
It was amazing. Their questions after my talk were insightful, revealing and touching. These girls get it and will never look at their IG feed the same way.
It was a powerful message to begin their day at their conference.
And as always, no "Michele-style-keynote" is complete without "homework" They got some me and will start tonight connecting to where true confidence lies.
Connect with me if you have a group or organization. I would be excited to explore if my one-of-a-kind message can touch your audience.
