Real Girl Things

What gives girls real confidence? Is it the things they say, or the things people say about them? Is it their appearance, or their efforts? Too often, girls are judged based only by what’s on the outside. Over time, they might become less likely to share what’s on the inside. That’s what this initiative is all about: inspiring and celebrating the things that give girls real confidence, no matter where they come from. #RealGirlThings.

#RealGirlThings Flat Lay

We asked each student to bring in one item that gives them confidence to create one giant flat lay. The items they chose were as unique and interesting as they are. Confidence isn’t about only sharing the things that matter to others: it’s about sharing what matters to you as an individual.
