Living Resumes: Documenting Their Awesomeness!
The purpose of this stall was to offer the girls an opportunity to document their qualities, goals and wisdom on a laminated sheet that they could take away for their personal records. This also included a photo of themselves.
Identifying their qualities
Just as a work resume requires us to list skills and experience, so too the Living Resume asked the girls to identify the qualities they bring to the world.
The girls were amazing in how they were willing to share their qualities - with kindness, love and honesty shared most often.
What message would you give your younger self?
When asked this question, the girls offered some gems which we could all learn from:
“Always trust yourself”
"Don’t care what people think of you!"
“Feel beautiful no matter what anyone else says”
“Don’t hang out with people that are jealous of you”
Whose Role Model are you?
In addition to supporting them to identify their qualities and offer their wisdom, we asked the girls whose role models they are. Common responses included: friends, brothers, sisters, pets and even parents!
