Gaia Girls is always a huge relief in my week, and I feel more confident in myself and with others. I am a lot more connected to nature and the earth, in some way protected from what I don’t like about most middle schoolers’ behavior, like bad attitudes, judgment, and self depreciation and insecurity. I also feel I have a much better relationship with my mom.
