Chasing the Good Life

We asked 20 Canadian writers to share who they would nominate for the Dove Celebrate Mom Contest. Here's who Jen Taylor from Little Miss Mocha, would nominate.

Little Miss Mocha

I was so pleased to be asked to take part in this project.  It’s so important to me to write about women, and girls, and other moms.  We have such impact on one another, and it’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly.  Everything we do, read and write goes to our hearts…and we need to remember the girls we are raising are the same.  We need to help them find their best qualities, help them grow, and help ensure when they look in the mirror they see what we do – strength, potential, beauty that is unique and special.  Dove has always led the way in helping real women and girls feel beautiful – through their Self-Esteem Fund programs and smart, honest campaigns that show women at their best.  I know women who were in a television ad created by Dove, and my neighbour was once chosen for a print campaign.  Fantastic.
