Self-esteem refers to how much you value yourself. It’s when you know that you are important and talented. People who have a healthy self-esteem typically do well in school and workplace and get along well with others. People with a healthy self-esteem know what their talents are. This workshop will run self-esteem building activity by using This Is Me exercise. People can learn from This Is Me exercise by drawing self-portraits and completing the questions about sense of identity, strength, friendship, and encouragement to build people self-esteem, encourage people to learn to love themselves for who they are, and develop a growth mindset and are more likely to persevere in the face of challenges.
