Just like the rest of the world, we were devastated when the pandemic shut schools down. We were no longer able to offer any of our in-person interactive workshops. We decided to go virtual to accommodate the students that wanted to learn additional mental health strategies that could be implemented while in quarantine. The Beauties from Chicago, Las Vegas & Houston learned how to cope with stress using fun, interactive activities that they could easily implement at home!
The camp was a success!!!
