  3. Make responsible decisions about one’s choice (Responsible Decision-Making)
  4. Encourage others (Relationship Management)

 

Brownies will learn the following from this workshop:

  • What’s inside us matter most
  • There’s not just one way to look beautiful
  • There is a huge diversity of beauty ideals around the world
  • The media uses a narrow idea of beauty to sell things to us
