Not being comfortable in one's body can adversely affect the confidence level of anybody, much less a teenager who is just finding her way in life.
Such was the case of Nancy, a high school junior, who is 6 feet and 9 inches tall, at least a head taller than all her mates.
And like the teenage girl that she is, Nancy had a crush! Nancy had a crush on Shea, one of the most popular boys in school who was a senior and was on the basketball team.
However, the plot twist was that her crush was 5 feet 6 inches, more than a foot shorter than she was.
She had never been so comfortable around boys because she felt they were intimidated by her height.
Now, prom was around the corner and more than anything, Nancy wanted to go to prom and with her crush.
She kept hoping he would ask her and one day, after class, the unexpected happened! Shea asked her to prom in the hallway in front of everyone, and she said 'yes!'.
Next came the problem of what to wear and for 6'9" Nancy, this was quite the herculean task as her size was not exactly prevalent.
Eventually, she decided on a beautiful flowing blue dress and a 2-inch pair of heels, as a dress was not complete without heels.
Prom day came, and Nancy looked so gorgeous as Shea came to pick her from her home with her family hosting a waiting reception in her house.
Shea was blown away as he described her as 'drop-dead gorgeous' and 'stunning.'
Her stepdad took so many pictures of Nancy and Shea amid numerous comments about Nancy's beauty.
According to Nancy, the positive remarks from her family members and helped her confidence as she knew looked good, Shea's swagger and enthusiasm also helped.
The duo then went off to prom, which Nancy described as 'the best experience ever.' Now, Nancy said she's happy with her height and would not trade it for anything in the world.
How to help teenagers build confidence in themselves
The first step and perhaps, the most important is to be a model of self-confidence for them.
Next, teach them to balance self-acceptance with self-improvement and praise their efforts, not the outcomes.

Another vital thing to do would be to encourage such teens to explore new opportunities and also to develop positive talk about themselves.
Nancy was able to have a great time because her self-esteem was boosted by the people that surrounded her.
A big thumbs up to Shea for being a gentleman and making a girl's dream prom come true!
