Leadership Development Workshop- BP As a Movement
18 May 2013- This lovely Saturday morning, Beautiful People leaders came together to look at just what it means for us to be a movement. With the challenge to be addressed in mind, a vision that we stand for, we aim to develop replicable models for success- namely through raising leaders.
Just as we invest into the lives of the Little Sisters, it is equally important for us to invest into the lives of Big Sisters and leaders.
Trainers Irene, Melissa and Susie put us through a game that really exemplified what the following proverb meant! “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. Relationships are what make us strong, and hand in hand, we made it through!
Today, we also discussed Beautiful People values in action. The powerful stories of LOVE, RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, COURAGE and COMMITMENT were highlights of the morning’s sharing.
Thank you sisters for a wonderful morning together!
Thank You to An (Athletic) Angel!
For her birthday this year, Siti Nurhidayati, chose an unconventional way of celebrating life!
She raised $5k for Beautiful People through an arduous 30-30-30 for her 30th birthday last week! 30 laps in the pool, 30km bike, 30km run.
Some play and picnic

6 April 2013- The Big Sisters at Gracehaven spent an awesome morning over a coaching conversation and breakfast as they shared from their hearts, reflecting on just what it takes to build and deepen relationships with our Little Sisters…
Thank you to mentor coaches, Susie, Irene and Melissa, for facilitating this!
Keeping It Real at Our New Volunteer Training Session
16 March 2013- At each training for new volunteers, the highlight is always the part where we invite Little Sisters to come back and share their perspectives on what works in a mentoring relationship.
I am always inspired by their sharing and this is what keeps it real for me, and why I keep coming back to continue in this work. They are our best teachers!
Here, Young Leader Sharon shares with aspiring new Big Sisters her story and her perspective.
2 March 2013- Our Little Sisters thought they were there to watch a performance, but they end up taking center stage & having fun jumping into this forum theatre to change the “stories of their lives”.
Thank you Lasalle and Fairuz Atiqah for this evening of fun! Yes, (i’m)perfect!
The start of a journey- fresh with hope!
21 Jan 2013- Gracehaven kicks off 2013 with a review of the high points of 2012, and looking forward to what we hope to accomplish in 2013. The colours and pictures convey the freshness of hope for what is to come!
