Q.) Why did you start Face It Today?
"I have always known that I wanted to help motivate, inspire and empower girls that they can do anything they choose to do in life. I wasn’t sure exactly which form it would take, but I knew it would happen eventually. Personally, I have overcome adversity in my own life, and believe with every fiber of who I am, that WE can Face anything head on and come out on the other side even better than before.
Whether it’s a difficult, life altering challenge or a really bad day, life can be hard at times. Unfortunately, self-esteem and confidence issues start as young as 8 years old, once social interactions begin, and when puberty hits. While this is a serious issue, building and inspiring self-esteem should also be fun, as well as, a beneficial learning experience." - Amy LLoyd, CEO & Founder
