The girls of Fifth Harmony know they’re worth it, and they want you to know that you are, too.

In Seventeen’s June/July issue, the singers open up about their insecurities. From being scared to speak up to worrying about their appearance, they have faced individual struggles over the years, but have learned to overcome them and stay confident. The girls are using their feminist hit "Worth It" to let fans know they can do the same, and their words of wisdom in Seventeen are here to help.

Seventeen’s June/July issue hits stands on May 19. Scroll down for more pics of Fifth Harmony and head over to Seventeen.com for more.

Camila Cabello on overcoming her shyness:
"Growing up, I was extremely shy. When I started at a new school, I didn't even know who to sit with at lunch. I was walking around the hallways, trying to act like I had somewhere to go. It felt like I was invisible. Singing has made me feel like I fit in. I'm so much more comfortable being myself now."

Ally Brooke on using her voice:
"I used to be really scared to voice my opinion, whether it was with the other girls or just about an outfit I didn't like. I kept worrying what other people would think of me if they didn't agree. But I learned that I was just hurting myself. I live by the quote 'Speak even if your voice shakes.'"

Normani Kordei on developing confidence:
"It's really important to look at yourself in the mirror and have a conversation. Tell yourself you're beautiful every single day. Even if you're not feeling that great in an outfit, but you like how your hair looks, focus on that. The only person holding you back is you."

Dinah Jane on learning to love her body:
"Everyone knows I'm the thick girl. I used to be so sad about it, but being Polynesian, we're naturally thick-boned. I realized it was like I was ashamed of my culture and needed to stop bringing myself down."

Lauren Jauregui on never limiting yourself:
"Women are often made to feel like they have to be a certain type of girl, but you can be anything you want to be."

    growing up I always had my my hair covering my face.. I would find every reason to cover the scars on my face becs of my insecurities of being unpretty and not accepted .. but today I have accepted the fact that I don't have perfect skin, that my polynesian hair will never be naturally tamed, that I might not be the prettiest girl but I realized that true beauty is whats inside and accepting myself for who I am.. and finding my inner strength to leave the house without make up and learning that nobody's perfect #unprettyMonday

    Sometimes my cheeks are too red and I get embarrassed. Sometimes I don't like my nose, or my hair, or my body, or anything for that matter. I used to be so insecure about every piece of myself and as I've grown up and gotten to experience the fact that I'm not the only girl in the world who feels that way, I've learned that loving yourself is worth your time. There are days that its hard and there are days you may feel awful because you will never look like that person, think like that person, be like that person, but always keep in mind that that person will never be you. #unprettymonday #youdontneedthemakeup #beconfident

    #UnprettyMonday What makes YOU beautiful is not being afraid or ashamed of who you are and showing your personality!

    #unprettymonday I always thought that I was okay & not the most beautiful girl there was. I use to get teased about my eyebrows and how thick they were. But this flaw has become my greatest asset and I take pride in them. You came into this world without makeup which is just the way God created you. As much make-up, extensions, plastic surgery you get it's irrelevant without believing that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL 💕 #beautystartsfromwithinFollow
