Meet Yourself: A User’s Guide to Building Self-Esteem

Please watch this fabulous video of a Tedx Youth Event speaker, Niko Everett, as she describes her path to meeting herself at age 21. This week, rather than read a story please watch this daring personal story on how this woman started building her own self-esteem (I sure learned a thing or two from it!). Enjoy!

P.S. Thank you to a great team of ladies who originally introduced me to this speech.

Dealing With Bullies

Being bullied by someone is not easy, regardless of what tools your support system (such as teachers, school workers, family and those you trust) provides you. It takes confidence and courage to stand up for yourself and others when bullies try to command power by knocking others down. It is important to find ways to handle these situations without engaging with the bully or reacting back. This video of the singing duo, Bars & Melody, has written a great song as a way to deal with bullies!

After watching the performance, what are ways you can combat bullying in a positive way?
