"A lot of people don't think they're beautiful."

Eighth-grader Gabby Fogg attends a middle school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Recently she started a positivity campaign in the girls' rest room at school. She put a Post-it note on the mirror that said "you are beautiful." Josie Homestead saw Gabby's message and decided to join in. She left a stack of Post-its in the bathroom and encouraged other girls to leave messages.

According to Josie, "Everyone kind of joined in and I think pretty much every girl in the grade wrote one. So I think it also creates that sense of unity and it unifies everyone together with this cause." The campaign is shifting the focus from the physical image girls see in the bathroom mirror to inner beauty -- for anyone who may need a boost.
