The Story

Hi Friends, 

I AM BEAUTY Inc. is a New York City based socially conscious organization focused on the development of girls and women to build confidence, exceptional character and leadership. We aim to empower girls and women to be B.E.A.U.T.Y. (Beautiful, Extraordinary, Ambitious, Unlimited, Talented and Young).  

From April 1st - April 10th, 2016, we will be leading a service trip, Operation Healing Haiti,at the Haitian American Caucus School (Institution Mixte Shalom Des Freres) located in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. We will be working with students from the ages of 3-17 providing art and play therapy, self-esteem workshops, fitness classes, hair styling/barber services, holistic healing, meditation, journaling classes, web development courses and much more. We will provide healing and support for as many children as possible on this service trip.

In the workshops, students will:

  • Gain self-esteem tips and participate in exercises to boost confidence;
  • Learn positive affirmations to practice gratitude and positive thinking;
  • Participate in self-discovery exercises to identify strengths and talents;
  • Create vision boards and vision statements to help formulate life goals;  
  • Become aware of limiting beliefs and discover the power of letting go;
  • Be empowered and inspired to reach their fullest potential; and
  • Receive beauty packages, including an ‘I AM BEAUTY” Haiti t-shirt.
