Girls participate in empowerment boot camp

Some of the best and brightest young Bronx women got a makeover in Mott Haven.



Girls from 11 to 18 years old learned how to reach their fullest potential at the "I am B.E.A.U.T.Y." fall boot camp.



The boot camp is part of a nonprofit that's designed to empower and inspire young girls and women through self-love, personal development, career direction and goal-setting.



The girls also get makeovers done by a professional makeup artist to accentuate their outer beauty.



The program runs from six to 10 weeks.



It is currently being held at a Mott Haven art gallery, but organizers are looking for a more permanent location as the program continues to grow.
