Hello - what a great idea!  Do you have a team of other young people working with you?  What are some of their ideas?  Are there people who are against your idea?  Have you talked with them?  You may also want to check out this <a href="https://www.peacefirstchallenge.org/journey/understand/compassionate-insights/">tool</a> to help you further develop your idea.  Good luck!

I love that you're thinking big! Do you have allies across your community to help? And are you going to involve adults too? I think it goes a long way toward creating empathy when we realize that every person has their own vulnerabilities, insecurities, self-doubts, challenges, etc. One resource for you might be Lady Gaga's Born this Way Foundation. They've been focusing a lot on similar issues.

Hi, just checking in. How are things going? Have you been able to connect with folks in your community about your idea? What are you learning? Also, you might be interested to know of Peace First Fellow <a href="http://www.peacefirst.org/peace-first-fellows/2016/3/18/emily-anne">Emily-Anne</a>, who is also working on fostering self-love.
