Last Saturday, we were at the launch of The Better Story Project, a movement whose mission is to build a community for women and by women who empower each other to be the hero in their better story. Arriane Serafico of wanderrgirl was there to share her story about girl empowerment. She talked about her struggles and disappointments in life and how she was able to overcome them. Needless to say, we came out of Galileo Enoteca definitely inspired. Here are 5 things we love about The Better Story Project:
- Girl power rules. In a world where there's cyberbulling and Mean Girls IRL, it's comforting to know that there's a place where fellow ladies can come together and inspire each other. The Better Story Project encourages girls to dream and live out their better stories.
- Love for all. The Better Story Project doesn't discriminate. It's a community for girls of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Everyone is welcome! They post schedules of their monthly workshops on Twitter and Facebook so make sure you follow their accounts.
- Don't settle for mediocre. The Better Story Project encourages you to do more and to be more. Their workshops are designed so that you are able to think about who you are and what you want to become. They allow you to unlock your potential and discover your better story.
- We are all equals. When they talk about mentoring, they don't mean an authority talking down to a subordinate. They believe in a kind of mentoring among unique individuals who share the same passion for change. So don't be afraid to join even if you've never done anything like it before. They will make you feel comfortable and help you feel like you belong.
- You are the hero. The Better Story Project doesn't write your story—that is up to you! But it does tell you to stop being a supporting character in your own life. Because when you do live the life of the hero that you truly are, you'll be living your better story.
