The TurnItAround Project
A new project by a Pace student aims to turn negative thoughts to positive affirmations one photo at a time. Join the movement on December 6.
After a long struggle with self-esteem issues and crippling fear of imperfection, Pace student Abbe Dembowitz created something to benefit individuals on a large scale.
The TurnItAround Project provides a simplistic approach to a complicated problem: turn it around. In providing positive affirmations for negative thoughts through photographic expression, individuals will be able to gain a newfound sense of self. The project creates awareness, community, and garners positivity for the best and worst in us all.
This empowering movement will show individuals across the country that you are not alone in your insecurities and that the solution is as simple as a change in perspective. At photo shoots, participants circle up to talk through their insecurities, and as a unit, we come up with the corresponding positive affirmation.
How do you TurnItAround? Join the TurnItAround Project and Student Government Association (SGA) for TurnItAround Day on Sunday, December 6, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Student Union. Members of the TurnItAround team will join you and individuals from around the city to take your fear/insecurity and turn it into a positive. They will take your photo with the words written on your body or on a sheet of paper and use it to further garner a community in action.
