Demali Elliott mentors young women in challenging situations through creative and introspective activities to redirect their stories onto a positive trajectory with her program Petals-N-Belles. It is a rigorous program designed to help those ready to receive that help -- 68 young women at last count. The organization, largely staffed by volunteers, utilizes physical and mental challenges like rock climbing, trapeze and yoga to build emotional wellness and resilience. In this video, Elliott describes three qualities she’s seen in the girls that have most inspired her own success.

Lessons:

  1. Model energy that will energize those around you.
  2. Bounce back. Be inspired by the ability of children -- they fall and get up every day.
  3. Dream big; you can fill in the details later.
