"I am a Strong Girl!"
The pen pals from Washington DC who have been writing with Espwa's eldest girls all year are finally in Haiti for a week of girl-power activities. They started with some self-esteem exercises. First, they all went around in a circle to declare their strength as a girl by saying "I am a strong girl!" or "Mwe se yon fi ki fo!"
They then traced their silhouette on a big piece of paper and wrote things that they admired about one another.
And lastly, they made flowers with each petal dedicated to a thing they like about themselves. Needless to say, these girls are having an awesome time developing their confidence and spending time with their American mentors.
