Alicia Emamdee is the creator of For She Is Beautiful, LLC, a website dedicated to empowering and inspiring women, teen girls and girls of all ages. It provides information on building self-esteem, staying positive and believing in yourself. Alicia has an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling and has over eight years experience working with children and adolescents. As a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, she worked as a Child and Family Therapist for two years at a mental health agency in South Florida. Due to an illness called fibromyalgia, however, she was forced to stop working in the counseling field but is finally living out her dream of writing inspirational and motivational books with her first young adult novel on self-esteem for teen girls, “Aloha Self-Esteem?” She is currently working on her second book in the self-esteem series for women in their 30s and 40s.
In her own words:
"My goal is to help empower women, teen girls and girls of younger ages to learn to love, respect and accept themselves for who they are despite the pressures society places on women and teenage girls to look perfect. The rigid beauty standards of our society are beyond anyone’s reach and can make anyone feel insecure! But as long as you have high self-esteem, as long as you value yourself and know your worth, once you become self-confident and believe in yourself, know that there are no limits to what you can achieve. Find the beautiful within you. All you have to do is believe!"
