From the Paper:

"The Estee Lauder Companies spokeswoman, Dawn Russell, has dealt with many difficult life challenges including being diagnosed with stage three skin cancer in her twenty's. Since her diagnosis, Russell has harnessed the inner-strength that she cultivated during her battle with cancer "to empower young women- especially teenagers- who are struggling with the everyday pressures of their own lives" (Oz, 2009). The realization that women are susceptible to severe insecurities that can negatively impact their lives is an imperative step to actually helping girls and young women. In addition to Dawn Russell and her organization, there have been several other organizations that have similar missions of improving and developing girls and the skills that would make them stronger and more successful individuals including the mentoring program Girls Circle.
"Foremost, the main purpose of the mentoring program is to "encourage the development of strength, courage, confidence, honesty and communication skills for girls" (Girls Circle Association). By developing these different skills and traits, the mentoring program hopes to build girls who are able to "take full advantage of their talents, academic interests, career pursuits, and potential for healthy relationships" (Girls Circle Associations). The impact of mentoring these girls to hone and develop the previously mentioned helps girls build long-term skills that are productive to others and more important, to the girls themselves."
