Embracing self-esteem, part II
[
[Editor’s note: Claremont Girl Scout Jun-ior Troop 1094 from Sycamore School is inthe midst of earning a “Becoming a Teen”merit badge and, as such, have been work-ing to debunk the myth of beauty in themedia through an examination of air-brushed and Photoshop-enhanced imagesof women and girls online and in print. A series of letters the girls wrote in re-sponse to an article on a project under-taken by Girl Scout Troop 5364,“Embracing self-esteem instead of falsebeauty,” is published below.

]Dear Editor:Thank you for publishing this article onthe Girl Scout troop’s badge on self-es-teem. I believe that this is truly a causethat should be more recognized, and Ithink it will be. Your reporter paid good attention to de-tails, aside from the fact that troop leaderTina Mann is actually a Sycamoreteacher, not Sumner.I was very impressedthat this article made the front page andgot a very good amount of your space andtime. It was nice that you got the perspec-tive of Lara Jenkins. I liked what she hadto say. Thank you,
Merry Aichele
Troop 1094
Dear Editor:I am writing because I would like youto know how much I appreciate the articlethat you put in about self-esteem vs. fakebeauty (“Girl Scouts embrace self-esteeminstead of false beauty”).I feel that it is very important to get thepoint across to all girls—including me—that self-esteem is more important thanlooks and Photoshopped images. Peopleshould not stress out over beauty andweight when there are so many more im-portant things. Thank you for listening tomy points. Sincerely,
Lucy Chinn
Troop 1094
Dear Editor:Thank you for putting the article in theCOURIER about fake beauty! I liked itbecause it was a great article that showedwhat is on the inside [of us] is the mostimportant, not just what’s on the outside.It was helpful because it can help girlsfeel confident about themselves. Thanksagain! Love,

Troop 1094
Dear Editor:I thought that Girl Scout Troop 5364(“Girl Scouts embrace self-esteem insteadof false beauty”) did a great job gettingthe point across about inner beauty—thatwhat is on the inside counts and yourbeauty [should be] shown in your ownways. I think beauty pageants are fake, be-cause the girls get all dressed up and puton so much make-up so we can’t see whothey really are. Sincerely,
Lilly Pugno
Troop 1094
Dear Editor:I really appreciate the fact that you putthis article in the COURIER (“Girl Scoutsembrace self-esteem instead of falsebeauty”).My troop and I have been learning a bitabout this and how lots of images in mag-azines are fake. I’ve also seen someYouTube videos that say the same thing.There are a lot of Photoshopped modelsthat young teenagers don’t know aboutand I’m glad that you are bringing this toawareness. From,

Dear Editor:I thank you for coming up with the ideato write the article “Girl Scouts embraceself-esteem instead of false beauty,” be-cause it helps remind young teenagersthey don’t need a lot of make-up, popularapps or the new style of clothes to expressthemselves. Thank you for showing me and my GirlScouts what it is like to be ourselves. Sin-cerely,
