The camp

When it comes to enthusiasm for sharing her knowledge, Debra Penzone has a contagious energy. That energy knows no boundaries... including generational ones. Last summer, as a part of the development of her new book, Debbie's Club™ Discovering MyTrueBeauty™ for Girls, author Debra Penzone planned three themed days to host 14 teen girls from central Ohio: MyTrueStory™, MyTrueSelf™ and MyTrueBeauty™. Those three days became known as Debbie's Club Camp Days. During those days, Debbie shared her struggles as a teen through childhood stories, guided self-reflection, self-discovery and shared conversation on handling pressures facing teen girls and led exercises for these young women to discover their personal inspirations and true beauty from the inside out.

For author Debra Penzone the Camp Days were some of the most memorable days of her lifetime. "To see these young women blossom and grow their self-confidence right before my eyes has been life-changing," states Debra. "It has been transforming to me to witness the impact the information in my book has had on the 14 amazing girls who are the foundation of Debbie's Club™. It is extremely exciting for me to know that through my book we can reach young women everywhere who need guidance in discovering the special person from within and the confidence to express that unique beauty to the world.

Reviews & Testimonials

  • "As the mother of a 15 year old girl, I was very impressed with the positive values Debbie shared with Lexie at her camp. It can be difficult to talk with a daughter about the importance of confidence, first impressions, body language and inner beauty. Debbie engaged Lexie and the other girls in an open dialogue about these topics and more. Most importantly, I feel Lexie walked away learning the value of being true to her and that inner beauty comes from within."

    -Kathy, Lexie's Mom

  • "I LOVE THIS BOOK—the plain writing style, the beautiful design and, most of all, the authentic points of view of real girls. Debbie has compiled a fabulous hands-on tool that girls and anyone who wants to help them build self-confidence can use. Debbie, thank you for sharing your story and being an inspiration to girls everywhere!"

    -Takeysha sheppard cheney, Publisher & Editor in Chief, The Women's Book

  • "If only Debbie's Club™ had been available to navigate me through puberty—a time when insecurity, fear and self-doubt were my best friends. I love how the book emphasized lessons of self-discovery with fun-filled, girl-oriented activities. I can't wait to share this book with my own daughter!"

    -Stacey Soble, Editor in Chief, Salon Today

  • "What a fabulous tool to help girls navigate the turbulent waters of those oh-so-impressionable years! Debbie has found a wonderful way to connect with young women through candid conversations and empower them to not only embrace who they are but imagine who they can become. My only disappointment is that Debbie's Club™ wasn't around when I was a teen struggling to find MyTrueSelf™!"

    -andrea cambern, News Anchor, WBNS-TV

  • "Debbie uses her own memories of teenage angst to put together a guide of self-reflection for today's teens. As a mother of two daughters who have navigated those troubled waters, I found Debbie's Club™ to be a security blanket for girls experiencing that wacky world of adolescence."

    -Gail Hogan, Host/Producer, Daytime Columbus, NBC4, WCMH-TV

  • "If you're yearning to be comfortable in your own true skin, then you need to join Debbie's Club™, the place where girls can feel safe to be their own true selves. Answering Debbie's insightful questions will guide you toward looking inside yourself and learning how to let your inner confidence and beauty shine the way they were meant to. When that happens, your whole life will become one big inspiration board for yourself and others, as you leave your beautiful mark on the world!"
