Meet Gail, our Senior Style Ambassador!
“Women of my generation, especially, put everyone else’s needs ahead of our own. That takes a toll eventually, especially when those that you cared for are gone.”
Gail sits taller these days. “I have changed! When I visited Uncommon Threads, I was initially a little nervous, but I was also curious and interested in the program because of my former work with battered women and the mentally ill. I didn’t realize how low my own self-esteem had fallen, and I had forgotten my own life’s accomplishments. I was suffering just like those that I had helped but I didn’t see it. But the stylists opened my eyes and made me feel like a queen! And not just because of the beautiful outfits we were working together to compose, but because they were so interested in my life, what experiences I had and what I had overcome. They encouraged me to make choices that felt like, yes, this is me!”
