Girl 2 Girl
Asking a complete stranger for information on personal topics like birth control or teen pregnancy is beyond awkward. It’s sort of like the feeling you get when you go into the drugstore to buy pads or tampons and there’s a really cute guy at the register, ringing up your stuff. Believe me it’s not easy for me to know how to address the situation without you feeling awkward. But, interacting with girls that come into our Resource Center is one of my favorite parts of working here. I want girls to know that there are resources available to them, and that there’s a place where they can get the information they need. I want them to know there a place where we can cut through the awkwardness to get their questions answered.
You can be assured that anything you ask me or come to get information about will be confidential. The information that I give you will be reliable and accurate. Don’t think that I’m going to see you on the street and say “Hey didn’t I give you information on birth control?” Remember that sometimes you got to ask for help and you have to do research. So don’t be shy or embarrassed to come to the Resource Center and ask for information, be proud that you’re taking care of your body! I won’t judge you, and neither will anyone else that works here…
