making a collage. Tell them you have been assigned to make a collage
about yourself for school, work, or a club project. All collages must
be 2 x 3 feet. The collage must be completed within two weeks of the
time you ask your friends and/or relatives to help you. Ask them to
send you magazine pictures, sayings, articles, photos, prizes,
trinkets, cards, drawings, objects, ribbons, etc., indicative of the
various strengths, attributes, talents, skills, knowledge, virtues,
competencies, or abilities you possess. Ask them to send a short
explanation with each item they send you. Ask each person to send at
least ten items.

Once you gather the items, paste them on poster board in collage
fashion. On the back of the collage paste the explanations for the

Share your collage with your friends, family, and helpers. Explain
each item on the collage, and explain that they have helped you
overcome some of your personal insecurity by giving accurate and
honest feedback on reasons why you should feel secure and good about

Step 5: If you are still feeling insecure after completing Steps 1
through 4, review the material, return to Step 1, and begin again.

Love always,


I share because I care.
