BEautiful ME (BeMe) is a one-day event which offers a confidence-building opportunity to 30 at-risk, vulnerable or deserving youth, aged 13-18, by discovering their inner beauty with a boost on the outside as well. Teams of volunteer professional makeup artists, hairstylists, photographers, fashion designers and an empowerment team guide nominees and applicants through their own makeover. An inspirational and motivating activity and speaker further enhance the experience of inner beauty discovery.
This FREE event is a fantastic opportunity for youth to delve into and celebrate with peers what makes them unique and reveal their beauty from the inside out. Social media, puberty and peer pressure all have powerful impacts on self-esteem. BeMe helps youth realize that the way that we feel about ourselves is based on more than outer appearance, and strives to assist participants in discovering the value of their individual attributes, gifts and talents.
