What is your biggest takeaway or insight from the GIVEN Forum?
God delights in me as His daughter, and I am worthy of loving and being loved.
My action plan will be to create outreach groups for teens and elementary school students within the South Bronx who might struggle with mental illness. Since this is such a taboo topic, it is difficult for students, primarily young female students, to discuss the desires of their hearts and to seek help for whatever struggles they might be going through. I will do this by leading retreats for these students where female participants can dive deeper into their identity as women and the beauty that their life is as a woman.
