Happy December. As 2013 comes to a close, Speak Now has SO much to be grateful for. This year we gained 1,000 new Facebook friends, held three link-ups that brought together an upward of 400 bloggers for women empowerment, and hosted our first Next Generation Beautiful day camp for girls ages 6-11.
This year I am enjoying my final year of high school online, writing a book, redesigning my personal blog, launching a freelance photography business, and enduring my biggest endeavor yet- a position at the homeless women’s center in downtown San Diego. Needless to say, Speak Now has seen some incredibly quiet moments as I explore these new seasons of life.
My dream for Speak Now to spread women empowerment, online support, and community to women and teens in need has become a reality and for this- my heart is forever grateful to you, you, and you.
Appearing in several High School and community newspapers and websites across the country, Speak Now is setting a standard for self-love and self-appreciation as first priority in all areas of life all over the world. I am so grateful for all that have given up their time for this movement and hope that Speak Now sets a model example for a world with less body image judgment and emotional abuse for women and teens. It is incredibly humbling to see bloggers and small business owners rally their social media sites to support our movement for change that has seen a small but steady ripple affect through the blogging community and into your own communities.
2014 will bring new exciting adventures for Speak Now. Stay connected through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to have access to exciting events coming in the spring. Your kindness, generosity, and overwhelming support for Speak Now has encouraged me to go, do, and be in all areas of my life.
You inspire me, sweet people.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Have the happiest of Holidays and the most incredible New Year.
