Proviso West Hosts ‘Beyond Beautiful Conference’

The Proviso West interpretive praise dancers (PIP) opened the doors of Proviso West High School to girls from across the community as they hosted their very first “Beyond Beautiful Girls’ Conference.”

PIP welcomed over 70 young ladies to the all-girls’ conference, held on a Saturday. The conference was designed to teach life skills and offer students an open invitation to discuss self-esteem, self-love, and respect.

“Teenage girls can face a lot of issues,” said PIP sponsor Karen Jones. “Some struggle with low self-esteem, a lack of motivation, and peer pressure. The mission and purpose of this conference was to inspire, motivate, encourage, and educate our young ladies in a comfortable atmosphere where they could express themselves freely.”

The conference included classes and workshops on self-esteem, money management, goal setting, etiquette, and life skills. Students say they learned a great deal.

“I definitely think this event was important for all of the girls,” said Proviso West senior Deonna Beaty. “This was an enlightening experience and a lot of us needed it. The conference gave us ideas on how to better ourselves. It taught self-worth, self-esteem, and self-love.”

Proviso West senior Briana Oden says she too was highly encouraged at the girls’ conference.

“I thought the conference was very nice,” said Ogden. “It taught self-respect and it really showed us that we can do whatever we set our minds to. It encouraged us to follow our dreams.”

The Beyond Beautiful Conference was the first of a series of events designed to help uplift the young girls of Proviso Township.
