"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. 

To follow more of their activities this week, like Write to Be on Facebook page or check out their website
