Just Be You is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build teens self-confidence through self-compassion and self-love. Through workshops, school assemblies and motivational speakers, Just Be You focuses on the daily challenges of life as a modern teen, offering them a safe environment to be kind to themselves, share, learn and grow into their most confident self. The Just Be You team encourages and celebrates all levels of what it means to be bold, be brilliant, and just be you. Adolescence is a time met with a cross roads of trying to fit in while simultaneously figuring out who they are, what makes them different, and who they want to become, a duality that sometimes breeds confusion, anxiety, and depression.
