"Gleaking is when a jet of saliva shoots out of your mouth, and sometimes onto other people. And it’s really awkward. It’s usually involuntary, but it happens to me all the time. I do a million other things that make me different than everyone else. I just have to embrace it."
-Adri411, age 19
"If I positively use these things I don’t necessarily like about myself, I can make myself better instead of tear myself down."

"FLAWD is a collection of voices from a rising generation. It is a powerhouse reminder that we are called to be lights, not bullies."
"FLAWD is the refreshing response to the pressure to be #flawless. It‘s honest, candid, & supportive to anyone who has ever struggled with feeling like they are not enough. Isn‘t that all of us???"
"FLAWD is an empowering "How To" for not hating yourself. If it‘d been around when I was a teenager, perhaps my adolescence would‘ve been more chic and less bleak!"
"Emily-Anne cares deeply about making each of us feel better about ourselves -flaws and all!
"FLAWD reminds all of us that we are good enough, ready enough and important enough to be a perfectly-flawd light in the world."
"You can‘t be daring and adventurous if you hate yourself. FLAWD is filled with poignant, practical stories and possibilities. Reading it, I felt like I was in a room brimming with new friends, a room filled with kindness and care, and some kickass life hacks."
"On the day that you were born we all had to look away because your beauty was so powerful that if we’d looked directly at you at that perfect moment in time, we would’ve exploded. I would compare your beauty to the biggest plate of bacon and chocolate with a unicorn and a rainbow on top. Unless you’re vegetarian. Which is still beautiful. So keep being beautiful."
-ItsAntoniaWithAnA, age 16
"All the mixture of experiences that you’ve had? You’re the only one that’s had the mixture of those experiences. I mean, that’s something super-valuable."
-AdorianDeck, age 16

We all have our own version of the "Not Good Enough" story. These stories have the power to hold us back... or set us free. When approached with respect and compassion, our flawd stories can be turned into our strongest allies. They can even be used as a powerful way of helping others.
FLAWD Talks & Workshops explore courageous sharing as a way of connecting with our worthiness and freeing ourselves from shame. By asking students, "How might the things we hate about ourselves be used to help others?" they are invited to join in the spirit of the teen-led WeStopHate movement and turn their mess into a message!
