WE’RE BACK, with another INCREDIBLE Guest Post. I met Mélanie at an event back in October. She was sweet, kind, loving and incredibly easy to talk to. She started telling me about her business, F.L.Y. Girl Dance and it gave me immediate goosebumps. I asked her to share a bit about it here because I think SO MANY GIRLS can benefit from this program. So have a read and if you have any questions, please reach out to her on IG @flygirlprogram
I see it EVERY SINGLE DAY. Girls who struggle with their identity, who face unrelenting social pressures, who do not know how to communicate the multitude of emotions they are feeling. Girls who are overwhelmed with all of the choices before them, who struggle in relationships with friends and family, who long for a sense of belonging. Girls who find it impossible to tackle their goals or who do not even know what it is that they want and let failure and disappointment dull their light.
I have been working with teens for 20 years as an educator, coach and mentor. I am a woman and mother of three beautiful daughters ages 9, 12 and 15 years. This treasury of work has given me an insight into the lives of young women and has been the driving force behind the development of my F.L.Y GIRL program. These experiences have also given me the opportunity to discover where my true strength lies: connecting with and mentoring young women.
I designed the F.L.Y GIRL program so that I could offer something truly unique to our community. By blending dance, mentorship, yoga and meditation practices, I have created a safe space for young women that addresses all facets of their development.
All of these elements have been proven to contribute to the development and growth of communication skills, confidence, positive body image, physical fitness and even the creation of new neural pathways in the brain!
My goal is to guide girls in:
– Understanding who they are and what is important to them.
– Learning strategies to use in difficult social situations.
– Identifying and communicating their feelings with love and understanding.
– Setting and achieving any goal that is in alignment with their values.
– Becoming resilient in the face of obstacles and challenges in their lives so that they may see these as opportunities for growth.
Imagine how powerful our daughters could be if they held all of this knowledge now, with their whole lives ahead of them! My desire is to play a role in creating an entire generation of empowered young women who will move through life with grace and confidence and influence the world around them in a positive way. This is my passion, my path and my purpose.
If you have ANY questions about this program, please reach out to Mélanie. I know she would be MORE than happy to talk to you and how a young girl in your life could benefit from this incredible program.
