Mirrors on Monday
“The women I know best speak from their chests, not from their adenoids, and they laugh from the gut or even lower. The women I know best walk freely, loosely, claiming their space, taking their place. They do not apologize for existing.”
– Anne Cameron
Every year at Camp Kupugani, we cover the mirrors all over camp with white paper. Over the next few days, the papers fill with encouraging words and “love letters” to eyes, and thighs and hair. An essential part of Camp Kupugani’s mission is encouraging girls to consider themselves perfect inside and out. Covering the mirrors allows our lovely ladies to consider what physical beauty means to them. The next couple days are about taking the time to stop and consider how often we get stuck in our heads because the mirror doesn’t show us what we want to see. It’s going to be so exciting to watch the girl’s self-image shift from what they can see to what they can be.
