"One Dress. One Year."

"One Dress. One Year." is such an inspiring read written by Bethany Winz with Susanna Foth Aughtmon that tells the journey that Bethany took herself on during her junior year of high school.  Bethany was horrified that there is still slavery today and she decided to do something to take a stand against human trafficking.  This journey included Bethany wearing a black dress that she made every day for a whole year, and she took pictures and posted on her blog about her journey every day for a year.  This book shares some of her blog posts from that year, but also everything else she did throughout this year including her public speaking engagements and most importantly what she learned about herself and how she grew as an individual and handled issues in her own life that she was struggling with such as her body image.  This is such an inspiring read and I commend Bethany for the stand she took as a teenager and how this one year of her life was such a monumental part of her life and how it has formed her into the woman she is today.
