Redefining Revelation. Beauty as an Incentive. The heightened interesta in the modeling industry among young girls has become a valuable asset in attracting youth to Uncover the Real You where they gain skills in selfempowerment, leadership, and etiquette. Amanda Virgil has spent years researching the things that shape a young girl’s perception of herself and the long-term effects of a false recognition of selfi d e n t i t y.

According to Nielsen Media Research , MTV is the most recognized network among young adults ages 12 to 34. 78% of girls ages 12 to 19 watches for an average of 6.2 hours per week. From the day they are old enough to watch television or listen to the radio, girls in America are being programmed to follow trends. Amanda realized that many of these trends are harmful to young girls’ relationships with God and themselves. Therefore, she set out to change the system from the inside out. Working with the media rather than against it, Amanda created the Uncover the Real You Foundation—a national self-empowerment seminar that seeks to extract the best out of popular media and make it an incentive to solidify her message. Amanda shares her 10 years of experience in the modeling industry with a hands-on approach that covers the ins and outs of modeling, makeup application, and photography. Ensuring the seminars stresses teamwork, responsibility, young girls also learn about morality, soulsearching, professionalism, and how to think critically and draw conclusions between things they see and hear. Amanda has truly surrendered to God’s will for her life—to aid others in uncovering their true selves.

Be Unafraid. Uncover Your Self. The Uncover the Real You Foundation specializes in programs surrounding the concepts of: POSITIVE BODY IMAGE // SELF-ESTEEM DEVELOPMENT // DIVERSITY APPRECIATION GOAL SETTING AND SOUND DECISION-MAKING // HEALTHY LIVING AND NUTRITION PERSONAL WELLNESS AND/OR POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS // PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY The Uncover the Real You Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to educate and empower young ladies ages 8-18 and their parents with skills that will improve their quality of life.
