The middle years are a very special time of transition from childhood to teen. There's so much going on...middle school, changing classes, more teachers, sports, clubs, girls, boys, acne...it can be overwhelming trying to find your place. One thing is certain-this the time when preteens begin to define who they are. They are coming into what makes them unique and trying to find out where they fit in the world.
The YRP Entouragè can be such an amazing experience for a high school senior, that I wanted o find a way to contribute in a similar way with middle schoolers. That's where the FLY program comes in. First Love Yourself is the foundation on which self-esteem is built. FLY girls are between the ages of 11-14 or in grades 6-8. Similar to the senior program, they will participate in studio editorial sessions and bonding activities. I believe that every rite of passage or age phase, deserves a truly epic experience and the FLY program is it for the middle school years! Stay tuned for more details, but this is just the beginning of what I planned in the coming year.
