This is a program that celebrates you. Girl Talk is the way we share ourselves with those around us. Our voices tell the story of our life experiences, hopes, feelings and beliefs. This is the place for you to share your voice. Sharing your voice is a gift to yourself and to others. About the Girl Talk Journal This Journal was created to help you navigate this journey of self-discovery. As you find your voice or hear the voices of other girls in the group. This Journal is a place to write your personal thoughts and reflections. Writing in a Journal can have many benefits. Sometimes writing things down feels easier than saying them out loud. It can feel good to let things out that we’ve been holding inside. Writing is also a powerful way to make our experiences and vices clearer and stronger.
Girl Talk Empowerment is a program about taking a journey of self-discovery – a journey on which you and a group of other girls will share your dreams, your struggles and your stories. Staying connected to who you are – your true self – can be challenging in a world that does not always support girls. Together, you and the girls in your group will learn to trust and support one another. As you embrace your true selves, you will find your voices and your inner strengths and will understand the importance of your connection to the world around you. Through the group, you will be empowered to grow, change, face challenges, celebrate strengths and share your voices, loud and strong. As you begin this journey, you might feel alone and different from the other girls. Along the way, you may encounter feelings and experiences that are both exciting and difficult. It can be comforting, even surprising, to realise that the joys and pain that you experience are similar to those of other girls in your group. It may even be a new experience to find that you are not alone. Finding support from those you trust and respect is an important part of feeling connected. As you explore important issues and learn new ways to cope and better ways to make decisions, you will experience a greater sense of power and inner strength. Participating in a group that is using this program will give you an opportunity to be heard and to share your thoughts and feelings. You will be supported and encouraged to use your voice freely. If you are using this journal independently, you will find that the journal gives you a private space to explore many things: who you are today, where you’ve come from, what you’d like to change and where you’re going. Enjoy the journey.
