To 16 year old Jackie...
It hasn’t been too long but I do have some good news for you. You made really great friends in high school - it’s true! You knew it then and now, these friends will be there through your heartbreaks, meltdowns, and oh yes...those continued embarrassing moments!
Your family was there for you then and they will continue to be your rock and heart. They will be supportive no matter what, they love you!
You’ll encounter more questions and more things to worry about, but the truth is… it’s all relative. There will always be problems and solutions. The only thing you need to worry about is to NOT worry and do your very best. Keep praying and keep the fait...
Dear 16-year-old Amanda,
Happy summer! Enjoy it while you can!
Keep reading as many books as possible. It will be time well spent, you'll become a writer one day soon.
Enjoy the summer concerts. But remember a bikini top is not appropriate for lollapalooza.
And oil with SPF doesn't work. But you'll learn that soon enough.
Dear Surefire Girls,
What does an opportunity allow? How do you show someone when to seize opportunity when it presents itself?
It comes with asking questions and instating the belief that you can do anything.
Surefire Girls is an event that allows for questions to be asked and the belief to grow in each student that their future is in their hands.
I can't imagine how many paths you've carved for young women with this event.
As a leader in literacy in the tech world, lettrs is proud to be apart of your success and a partner in opportunity. The program empowers young women to influence friends and family through action.
Action creates opportunity Surefire creates futures...
Dear SureFire Girls,
What you are setting out to do is revolutionary and I wish you great success. I am so excited to see the intersection of technology, accomplished women, and emerging girls in society to inspire the next generation of "women of note."
I have a daughter of my own who is already interested in the principles and mission of your organization. Your unique conference for girls to interact with respected brands and people is a worthwhile and attractive cause.
Please consider a $5,000 grant of support from the lettrs Foundation for the first 5,000 letters that girls write to your national platform. We believe that strong and inspired written communication i...
Dear 16-year old me,
There is a part of me that wants to say that everything will turn out ok. And it will… it just gets really, really bumpy. And things don't turn out quite at all how you might expect.
And at the same time, it’s beautiful that it doesn’t. The vision you have is too small, you can do bigger, you can do more. Never forget that.
But if I could tell you something right now, it would be to know yourself first. Understand why you do the things you do. Everything comes from your perception so make sure you know how your past affects you. Otherwise you'll live life unconsciously.
I also want to tell you that boys are wonderful, but you will get hurt. There...
Lettrs was founded to bring words to life in an impersonal world.
Words matter, they always will, because people matter. So take a little time to write.
Throw a custom image up for your Fridge Cover to display your personality on lettrs.
Be a writer, be a person, be indelible.
