"Love your selfie": A week with the Today Show

The Today Show hosted a week long tribute to self-esteem, self-worth and the power of YOU in a series called "Love your selfie". The idea behind this series was a chance for viewers to understand the issues facing people on all levels.

According to an independent (survey) research done by TODAY and AOL, Seventy-eight percent of teen girls, ages 16-17, have negative thoughts about their appearance. With that in mind, TODAY found three groups of teens working to change the way they see themselves: The Girl Scouts of the USA and Girls Inc., (both are partners with Dove in its self-esteem project, which has reached 13 million people) and REbeL, a grassroots organization started in Kansas in 2008.

Each group has found innovative ways to celebrate who they are and not what others tell them to see.

To see the segment as it aired on Tuesday April 29, 2014 @ 8:43 AM please go to http://tinyurl.com/mgog7kp
