Positive affirmations have the power to turn our lives around...literally! Abbe Dembowitz is the founder of the Turn It Around Project.

Abbe struggled with severe self-esteem issues and fear of imperfection. During some time off from school and counseling, she found that she could uplift herself and positively turn her life around. She did this by using positive affirmations! She wanted to help others has he helped herself; this then helped hatch the idea of this inspiring project.

How does it work? A photograph is taken from behind of the persons negative thought/message written on the persons back, that same negative thought/message is then turned positively and is written on the front of the person with their face showing. Thus, turning each negative thought into a positive, empowering these people to take control over their insecurities and make them their own in a positive way!
