Etiquette Workshops For Young Ladies – Become A Certfied Teen Coach

Every young lady need to know her worth. In today’s society many young ladies look to the media to learn how to be a young lady. Which is not always a good thing. Being a Certified Teen Coach you can help many young ladies know their self worth.

Why is it important for a young lady to learn proper “Lady Like Behavior”?

Negative stereotypes of women, many young girls are not taught how to behave in a lady-like manner.

We all want our children to have good relations with their peers as well as have a great self-image. Girls in particular often struggle with poor body image, peer and social pressures to look a certain way, or can lose confidence in their academic abilities during adolescence. Help ensure your daughter grows up to be a strong and confident woman.

What do we know about girls’ self-esteem?

Self-esteem is related to how we feel about ourselves: it’s not just how we look but how we feel about how we look. And it’s not just how successful or smart others say we are, but how confident we feel about our talents and abilities. Consider the following in order to understand the internal and external pressures girls feel, and how these pressures affect the development of their self-esteem:

  • Eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression are the most common mental health problems in girls.
  • 59% of 5–12th grade girls in one survey were dissatisfied with their body shape.
  • 20–40% of girls begin dieting at age 10.
  • By 15, girls are twice as likely to become depressed than boys.
  • Among 5–12th graders, 47% said they wanted to lose weight because of magazine pictures.
  • Health risks accompany girls’ drop in self-esteem due to risky eating habits, depression, and unwanted pregnancy

Devine Creations Attends: Barbara Jordan High School for Careers -Young Ladies Day

Sings: "I Look To You" by Whitney Houston

Program for the Deaf and hard of Hearing

On November 05, 2009
Devine Creations was on hand at
 Barbara Jordan High School for Careers 
Young Ladies Day Program.

The auditorium was decorated in gold and blue and this years theme was:
 “Embracing the Future with Dignity and Self Respect.”

Ms. Aquaria Miller,song “God Bless America” and after wards everyone had a moment of silence honoring the men and women fighting for our country.

Ms. Marilyn Redd the Young Ladies Day Program Coordinator ,was on hand for the welcoming.

The program for the deaf and hard of hearing did a wonderful interpretation of “Whitney Houston’s ” I Look To You.
Which should remind all of us that whatever we are going through in our life we should always look to JESUS.

Clearly my favorite skit of the morning was a Dramatic Presentation titled “Failure or Success” with
Ms. Lauren Shavers and Jasmine Shorts.
This skit tells us that we all have the ability to have success in our life, but we must keep our eyes on the prize., the only one who holds the key to success is you.

The guest speakers were, Mrs. Sylvia Bonds-Stewart who is the assistant principal of the school she gave the young ladies her testimony. Mr. Calvin Lawson another guest speaker spoke to the girls about not letting your emotions take over and  make bad decisions., and learning how to control our emotions.

After the speakers spoke to all grade levels
 Ms. Verna Caddie and Mrs. Rona Burns-Williams
(Who are also graduates of Barbara Jordan High School for Careers) 
spoke to the young ladies about
“Devine Creations Debutante/Cotillions”
and also about the other different workshops and services that Devine Creations offers to young girls in the community.

During the Young Ladies Day Program, there were also a presentation of academic awards, which was given to several young ladies. One of whom was Devine Creations Queen during Devine Creations 1st Debutante/Cotillion Ball,
 (Ms. Briana Barnett was given a medal of Academic)
You Go Briana!

The morning ended with closing remarks from:
Ms. Marilyn Redd – Young Ladies Day Program Coordinator
Mrs. Sylvia Bonds-Stewart – Assistant Principal
Mrs. Rever Givens- Principal

We would also like to acknowledge the young ladies day committee members, members of the mademoiselles, the ladies of unity and volunteer student assistants, for putting together a wonderful event.
