Last week the girls learned about Girl Power within the Latina community. The girls were taught that they can do anything they set their minds to. The girls were asked to write a letter to their future self and date the letter to be open exactly one year from the day they wrote it. The girls were encouraged to decorate their envelopes to make them more personal. In this same lesson the girls were asked to make a superhero logo of their own and stand in a superhero pose. Researchers Dana Carney, Amy Cuddy and Andy Yap investigated that by taking a superhero stance can give you a little boost of confidence when it is needed. This piece of research was placed in our lesson plan to teach the girls that a simple method can help create a little confidence that goes a long way. So if you ever need a little bit of confidence stand up take a superhero stance, take a deep breath, and feel the confidence flow in.
