Make Our Goal Become a Part of Your Future. 

BeaYOUtiful is a non-profit program that was initially established in January 2012. Reaching out to young girls between the ages of 8-14, this organization provides mentorship programs for those struggling with confidence, lacking self-esteem, or simply looking to build a more positive outlook. BeaYOUtiful works directly with schools and diverse communities throughout greater Vancouver, providing a safe and fun environment for girls enrolled in the after school program. BeaYOUtiful implements programs at community facilities and schools, allowing the opportunity for a brighter future to be accessible to anyone. This community recognized program targets and tackles multiple subjects divided over six-weeks. The classes range from learning to balance a healthy lifestyle, dealing with bullying and personal struggles, to the key steps towards setting achievable goals through inspiration. Although each class exemplifies a different life lesson, the same moral is focused on in the end: never forget you are beautiful. Differentiating from other organizations, BeaYOUtiful provides a unique experience being strictly managed by the youth. Each mentor, aged 16-30, is responsible for the teachings and guidance of the six-week course. The small gap between the age difference of mentors and class participants allows an easier formation of trust and friendship to be born. Personal connections flourish, providing a comfortable transition for the girls to open their hearts and minds to a healthier self. Our mission is to not build a teacher, counsellor, or friendship relationship, but a sisterhood bond to carry on for years to come.

“I just can’t thank you enough for making me feel more confident. I am much stronger than I was from the first day to the last. I really enjoyed being in this program and hearing other people’s stories and their meaning of beauty. You taught me much more than I knew.”

How We Started

 

I Want a Girl to Look in the Mirror…
& Feel Beautiful.

That was the ultimate goal when Taylor Hui started the non-profit organization; she wanted a girl to look in the mirror and feel beautiful.The more she immersed herself among children and teens however, the clearer it became that young girls struggle everyday to feel confident in their own skin and admire their physical appearance. At the age of 16, Taylor created BeaYOUtiful. Little did she realize that what started as an underestimated idea, turned into a community recognized organization to educate young girls about the development of self-esteem. Striving to reach her goal, Taylor took action with the help of Anthea Zeng, a fellow student who joined the project movement. Taking the dream to reality, the two girls had the opportunity to work with an inner-city school in Surrey, BC. After six-weeks of mentoring a classroom of young girls, Taylor and Anthea were exposed to the success displayed from the program. Realizing the potential of the organization and in seeing the vast growth of self-confidence, immediate action was taken towards advancing the program to other young girls in need. With programs enrolled throughout the community, the continuous growth of BeaYOUtiful will provide opportunities for future leaders. The program gives aspiring youth the chance to make a change, and opens doors for young girls to discover their inner-beauty and self-confidence.

BeaYOUtiful has helped me get through my problems and not be afraid to push and achieve my dreams! Thank you!”

I really love your program and hope you get into many more schools bc I see how important it is to the young girls to have this special place to gather and talk honestly about any topic and begin to learn about positive self esteem and self love.

The opportunities for you are endless! Happy to be on board.

Taylor had asked me to be apart of this movement to guest speak for young girls who are seeking to learn the true meaning of beauty, and self confidence. I had the honour to speak about my experiences growing up on how I dealt with bullying, and how I learned to love my flaws by appreciating what makes me different. I did a raw beauty photo shoot of the girls for them to realize that beauty is not what people see on the outside; beauty is when you are doing what makes you feel alive. I have always seen Taylor as a strong, poise and independent woman. I can’t thank her enough for allowing me to get out of my comfort zone as well to speak to these young girls.

I am so honoured to have been a part of Taylor Hui’s BeaYOUtiful organization. It was such an incredible experience to see all the girls feel confident in their own body’s. I believe it is so important to love who you are from the inside and out. Please join the Forever BeaYOUtiful movement and experience the joy I had in being a part of such an amazing organization

Being able to guest speak with the BeaYOUtiful Organization was such an honour, and I can not wait until my next chance to collaborate with them. The girls who participated in the program were so keen to learn about nutrition, and open to the ideas and exercises I shared with them. The part I loved the most was how respective and encouraging they were of one another to participate. The mentors helped create such a safe space for the girls, where they were able to share and get curious about nutrition, body image and health.

BeaYOUtiful holds a special place in my heart. As someone who struggled with body image and confidence, I believe if I had been involved in a program like this, the support of other girls and mentors would have helped me manage a lot of the self doubt I experienced. With social media, we are always comparing ourselves to others, and wondering if we are good enough, pretty enough, cool enough, and it is programs like this that bring us back to the core values caring about yourself, developing self love, and being present to the people around you. Everyone is in the power to create who they want to be. I hope through my participation with BeaYOUtiful I can instill this concept in young girls, and empower them to be the person they aspire to be.
