“Rewrite Beautiful is a revolution to change how girls see beauty in themselves from the superficial to the concrete with art for the prevention of eating disorders and to equip them to use their creative skills to positively impact their communities”.
It is a revolution to define beauty as an ACTION, which can be found in an individual’s creativity, kindness and strength. Rewrite Beautiful encourages girls (and women) to reject a harmful obsession with their bodies and instead focus on their gifts and talents that can be used to better their communities.
Rewrite Beautiful has some great values which drives its work with girls, but most outstandingly the organization promotes (in their own words):
“ARTISTRY– We believe every girl is a valuable and priceless piece of art; beautiful and created for a purpose. Whether or not she is a straight A student who volunteers her time, or an Anorexic addicted to drugs and living at a bus stop; we believe both are equally beautiful”.
“STRENGTH– Mental and physical strength are required to accomplish any great goal. We seek to build confident, self aware girls who value their own opinions and values over what is popular. We educate girls to value their bodies and nourish themselves with healthy food and healthy relationships”.
“CREATIVITY – Each and every person has a different set of interests, skills and talents. Diversity makes beauty. We seek to establish opportunities where girls can be creative and discover their gifts”.
“KINDNESS– We believe in investing in lasting beauty. The action of kindness can not be purchased, it’s purpose is to be given away. Our programming and curriculum teaches kindness as an action to build as apart of a girls character”.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised (Proverbs 31:30).
