What becomes a woman most? Self-confidence.

Girls’ confidence is trending.  From UnderArmour’s “IwillwhatIwant” and Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty to Sophie Amoruso’s #GirlBoss and even Barbie(!), girl-power advocates and advertisers alike are pushing the empowerment agenda.

Beauty may be skin deep but it is inextricably tied to how we feel about ourselves and how we engage with the world. When weight gets in the way of self-esteem, it can leave scars that last a lifetime. When we don’t know who we are or like what we see, it damages our self-confidence and disempowers us from pursuing our dreams.

One Girl Wellness is committed to helping all women at every age be their best and most authentic selves. This blog will be our forum to explore all the issues—from the sublime to the ridiculous—that influence our self-perceptions, behaviors and actions. We hope you will comment, feel inspired to contribute your own ideas and work towards raising stronger women one girl at a time.
