This summer I was offered the chance to be a part of GEMS, a local summer camp for girls excelling in math and science. The camp was an opportunity for girls, grades four through seven, to explore their interest and skills in STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, arts and math). And because of two local teachers’ awareness around how messages about having to ‘fix’ or change our bodies, so deeply impacts our ability to critically engage and excel in these STEAM areas, they asked us at Ophelia’s Place to kick off the camp with messages of body acceptance.

Instead of letting our young people’s minds wander to all the ways they wish they looked different, we need to be encouraging them to explore all the amazing things their bodies do for them, and allow them to do. I decided to interview the girls to get them thinking more critically about just that. And I hope this interview helps you to do the same.
