Many girls struggle with maintaining a positive body image—often stemming from the proliferation of unrealistic social ideals bombarding them on a daily basis. The “Believe in Yourself Project” is working to remedy this by not only giving young ladies the temporary confidence boost they need, but also empowering and inspiring them to recognize their full potential and self-worth in the long term.
Sam Sisakhti, founder of the nonprofit charity project, coordinates events that provide brand-new, unworn designer dresses for girls to wear to school functions and dances. Financial circumstances can sometimes prevent students from wanting to participate in such occasions. The organization focuses on helping these young women by making them feel beautiful both inside and out.
The campaign takes the necessary step further by partnering with influential and powerful women who themselves have struggled with low self-esteem. They act as mentors to the girls involved in the project. Sam and these women recognize that it is crucial to address such issues at an early age.
Dress designers and retailers interested in contributing to the cause may contact Sam directly for further details about ways to help. Visit BelieveInYourself.org to learn more and see how Sam’s efforts are making a difference in the lives of these future leaders and success stories.
