ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A Clinical Therapist says too many teenagers in north St. Louis County are battling negative images of girls and she wants to do something about it.
Tracie Berry McGhee of The Nia Group STL (Imani Therapy Wellness Center), wants to put up a billboard in north St. Louis County to counter those negative images.
“Social media, television, commercials, don’t always define our girls in a positive light,” Berry McGhee says. “So we thought it would be great for the community to come together to create a billboard that speaks to a brand of positivity.”
The message will be: “We know who we are. We love ourselves and we define ourselves in a positive manner.”
It is also a pledge taken by girls that are part of her, “SistaKeepers” weekly group.
The billboard will be located on New Florissant and 270. Berry McGhee has created a GoFund me page to raise $4000 for the billboard.
