Lincoln Southwest High School in Nebraska hosted their second REbeL event on Saturday, March 12th and it was so much fun! We took whiteboard photos, did a compliment circle, talked about body image, realizing our value, confidence, complimenting ourselves and others on factors other than appearance, and cultural barriers to self-acceptance. And of course, no REbeL event would be complete without Compliment Cookies. We were so happy we could be a part of this event, and we can’t wait for them to start their own chapter!
