Be More: Girls Empowerment

MISSION:

Be More is an organization committed to teaching young girls the importance of self-love and self-respect, and examining the role that social media plays in their lives. By creating a community of support, encouragement, and empowerment, as well as raising awareness and agency surrounding societal expectations of body image, be more teaches girls how build each other up and prevent negative conversations and behaviors that often lead to poor body image and eating disorders. Our mission is to get teens out of the world of comparison on social media, and back out into building real-life connection and relationships.

VISION:

Society today places so much value on the body and someone’s physical appearance. We envision a society where every girl and woman knows that she is so much more than just her body, and her worth is not determined by something so trivial and temporary as her weight or size. Body Empowerment is the foundation for a healthy and purpose-driven life, and is something that every girl deserves to experience. Our work is to create a culture where young girls not only have the tools to look past the lack of diversity and representation in the media, but also to advocate for a world where a more universal and holistic image of beauty is projected for all to see. 

Beyond body image, social media is playing an increasingly prevalent role in the lives of adolescents. While often a positive tool for growth and learning, social technology is also proving to be a detriment to the mental health of children everywhere. Our aim is to provide these children with the tools to self-regulate and to set their own healthy boundaries with social media. By teaching them to become more mindful consumers of the media, we can put the focus back on building valuable real-life skills like communication, integrity, self-confidence, and self-care.
