Dear visitor, 

My name is Penelope Bellerjeau I am 15 yrs old from PA. Some of you have followed my journey since I was 8 yrs old, here I am 7 years later continuing in my journey. I have grown in so many ways. Socially, I've had some challenges and those challenges continue to inspire me to treat others better than I have been treated. Many say "it comes with the territory", I have to disagree. Those who know me on a deeper, personal level, often wonder "where do you gather your strength from?"My parents for sure. I don't know where I would be without their guidance, love & support. 

"Why a non-profit, you're so young?" I have hosted youth outreach events since I was 8 yrs old, you are never too young to help others and promote kindness. They say,"hurt people, hurt people, I'd like to say in my case "hurt people, help people." I really felt it was time. I am so excited! Finally, I was able to legally form my non-profit incorporation. 

My mission is to inspire, promote kindness, raise awareness and help kids/youth that may not have the same outlet avenues as I have. I may be one person and that is ok. My passion is inspired by my own experiences. One day in the near future, you will all travel in time with me and understand my passion, purpose and intention.

Please take a moment and watch this video, choreographed by my friend/dancer/choreographer, Mayah. The intention for this video was to bring awareness on a specific topic - body image. Please be kind to yourself. See your worth, your beauty and your uniqueness. Love all of you. Do not focus on the "social norm", you are beautiful just the way you are.

 

Dance has helped me with so many personal struggles including, being bullied for years. Find your outlet, find what allows you to tell your story, you never know who you inspire. Surround yourself with people that lift you when you are down, people that understand your struggles, people that are willing to listen without judgement. Most importantly, be yourself and know that the pain people cause you, is not a reflection of who you are but a reflection of who they are. Keep your head up, I'm here for you - You're amazing, believe that.

To my friends, family, acting/dance community for information on how to be a part of my efforts to bring awareness, please visit the contact me tab.
