Slay Queens | Youth Conversations about Body Image
“You’re beautiful just the way you are and every one of us is created in a unique way.”
In light of World Mental Health Day, BCS introduces SLAY QUEENS, a one-day beauty workshop conceptualised by our BCS youth team to spark conversations about healthy body image and self-esteem amongst youths, while equipping them with soft skills to manage fair expectations of themselves.
Body image has remained one of the greatest risks to the positive self-image of youths. With the constant bombardment of social media, perspectives on body image have been severely distorted by unattainable standards. With this in mind, our youth workers conceptualised ‘Slay Queens’.
“On top of outer beauty, there is inner beauty as well. Your personality will shine as you progress in life, so I just want to encourage you that you are beautiful inside out.”
– Agnes Ng, BCS Youth Worker
BCS hopes to encourage and remind our youths to be kind to themselves, and that they are unique in their own ways, because there’s only one you in this world!
