As a trained Girl Talk Leader, some of my responsibilities are to teach confidence, leadership, and life lessons to middle school girls. A few of my favorites lessons I’ve taught have been Choosing to Be Kind, Stop Comparing Yourself to Others, and How to Talk to Your Parents without Screaming. It’s so fun to have the girls answer the discussion questions and hear their opinions on everything. It’s also meaningful for me to provide insight to them, and I hope that they take it to heart.
Girl Talk has truly made a difference in my life and I can’t imagine my life without it; I’m not looking forward to my being a leader ending in a few weeks when I graduate! Girl Talk is a great organization and out of all my friends who have done it, I don’t know one who hasn’t been impressed. If you’re on the border about joining Girl Talk – whether you are a parent, middle schooler, or high schooler looking to become a leader – I can’t recommend enough getting involved. Girl Talk has had such a positive impact on my life and I know it will for you, too.
