Girls in the Yadkin Valley will have a chance to build self-esteem and self-confidence Tuesday evening at the fifth annual Girls Empowering Girls Symposium in downtown Elkin.

The event will feature speaker, Teresa Spangler, with a presentation on “You are what you think!”

The goal of the event is to empower girls ages 8 to 18 to be self-confident, positive, supportive of each other, believe in themselves, know that anything is possible, gain a more positive body image and realize what others think is only fuel for lessons.
