Self Esteem Reality Check for Girls and Women

October 11th, 2009 · No Comments · Videos: Just For Fun

Baton twirling is a sport that involves girls and boys, women and men. That being said, the majority of the participants are girls and young women. Our sport is full of precious, talented, and beautiful girls. We came across this short film showing how computer effects, makeup, and hair are used to change how a model looks “before” to the image on a billboard “after”.

We consider this video required viewing for the girls and young women we know. Altered marketing images are so prevalent in our culture – on TV, in movies, in videos, on the internet, and in magazines. We appreciate the reminder that these images are not of real people and that they set a false standard. We hope that at every opportunity you will remind the girls in your life that they are truly beautiful, inside and out, and that they are treasured!
