Build a Mentor Collage

Many girls/women are visual learners, which is why magazines love to use bright colors, bold detail, and pretty pictures to lure us in.  Use this attribute to your benefit.  Create a mentor collage. This is a great activity for teens and tweens.

Cut out pictures of all the strong, powerful and wonderful men and women you look up to in this world, glue them together and build a collage.  You can be as creative as you’d like with the layout of the design as long as it appeals to your visual sensibility.  Place this collage somewhere in your room, house, or school locker where you can easily see it.

Remember this can be anyone from family members to historical, political, or musical figures to neighbors, teachers or even friends.  Consider them your personal “board of directors” or “army” behind you 100% of the way. Look to them when you need strength.  Turn to them when you feel down, sad or defeated.  Their images will remind you of what they went through and what they were able to accomplished.  This will ultimately remind you that if they can do it, so can you.
