I think every single one of us experienced some kind of torture from a Mean Girl at school when we were younger. While I wish I could say that it’s something you “grow out of”, it really isn’t—the Mean Girls just seem to get older! But things have really changed since I was in school; cyber-bullying didn’t exist and I never had to worry about if someone was plastering unpleasant things about me all over Facebook. Girls can be so mean to other girls!
So here’s something I think is really awesome that I wanted to share with you—the Mean Stinks program from Secret. Mean Stinks provides a fun, friendly online forum where teens are free to express themselves in a positive way and inspire other teens to celebrate fearlessness, too. By building teen confidence and assertiveness, Secret Mean Stinks hopes to empower girls to face the challenges of each day!
