How the Little Words Project is Inspiring Positive Change

New Jersey is known for a lot of things, such as being the Garden State, having the best diners, and our way of using nonverbal signals to communicate aka our aggressive driving streak. One such Jerseyan found a positive way to communicate nonverbally through beaded bracelets. Adriana Carrig is an alumna of The College of New Jersey and founder of Little Words Project. Not only is it the most fashionable accessory to have at the moment, but it is also a meaningful reminder of your capability, who you are, and what you love. Your bracelet has a unique tag with a code to register the story of your bracelet online. Once you feel like your bracelet has served its purpose with you, you can pass it on to others.

Little Words Project bracelet comes with many meaningful words such as “breathe,” “courage,” and “unbreakable.” You can also personalize the bracelets and get sayings such as “girl power” and “do good.” When I wear my bracelets, I’m reminding myself of a message that is important to me and which I want other people to see as well. The first bracelet I ever purchased from the company has the word “fearless” on it. This word fearless is a reminder to me to not let fear hold me back from experiencing all of what life has to offer. It is also a reminder to me that you can only overcome fear when you conquer your fear first hand. This bracelet has inspired me to take on what I think is the ultimate test of fearlessness: skydiving. For Summer 2020, I plan to book a skydiving session from Skydive Cross Keys located in Williamstown, NJ.

The other bracelets I own have “girl power” and “girl gang.” I chose to purchase these bracelets because I believe that females should support and empower other females. My girl power bracelet was given to a female here at T.C.N.J who is majoring in engineering. She told me how unfair she was being treated in her classes by the male students in her groups. They treated her like a secretary in their projects instead of giving her a rightful place in participating in the assignment. The treatment was so difficult that she considered switching to another major. I gave her the bracelet as a reminder that she has the power to not only stay in the major but inspire other girls to join into the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. For me, the bracelets are priceless because they inspire positive change in you and others through you.
