The Best Part of Me

Last season we are creating unique self-portraits through poetry and photography. Each girl chose their favorite body part to write about and photograph after reading The Best Part of Me: Children Talk About Their Bodies In Pictures and Words by Wendy Ewald. When you visit Gya this spring, you'll see a growing, one-of-a-kind youth exhibit celebrating the self!
