I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Dannielle’s experiences and related them so much to my own upbringing in my preteens and teenage years. Nothing has changed. But the message of choice was loud and clear. Girls at this age are grappling with their identity and acceptance within peers groups and also finding their place in the world.
The message was that you have the power, so use it in a positive way. Dannielle’s choice of language and syntax was familiar to the girls, they could relate. All thoroughly enjoyed the experience. For a whole day they heard about someone else’s plight in their younger, formative years. Dannielle was like a heroine for some of the girls. In class on occasion I still hear comments related to the day.
