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.

Action Plan:

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.
