POSITIVE BODY IMAGE
Over the years, our confidence is undermined by the media, the advertising world, parents, friends, adversaries and even our own inner voices. So if we can help young ladies at an earlier age see their worthand love themselves we are helping them to also continue to love themselves as adults and pass that own to their own children. With all the negative images and words we hear, it's time to reinforce some positive image and words to your youth, today is our day to live and walk confidently and spread that message to others.
We are a faith base organization that believes in the power of God that changes lives. We give our talent, time and money not because of who we are but because of who he is. We have fun while loving ourselves and others. Big, Beautiful & Blessed is built on Loyalty, trust and Commitment.
