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 , 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.
