Happy New Year ,

We hope that you had a fun and fabulous holiday season!

We look forward to bringing you more ways to be inspired and reach your goals. Let's start the year fresh and leave the drama behind.

In this issue, we highlight an upcoming teen event in Brooklyn. In case you were busy with holiday festivities, we added a link of interviews with KeKe Palmer and the New Boyz from our last issue. They are great interviews that shouldn't be missed. We've also included a funny New Year's list of "What Not to Do" in 2010. We hope everyone will make the best of this year.

Good Luck in the New Year,

On Saturday, January 23, 2010 there will be a FREE workshop called, "Express Yourself." The workshop will encourage girls, ages 13-17, to create artistic works through journal writing, making vision boards, art, song and dance. It will be a great place for teen girls to celebrate their talents!

Location: Bedford-Stuyvesant YMCA
1121 Bedford Avenue, corner of Monroe Street
Brooklyn, NY 11216

Time: 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM

For more information, please contact Feona Sharhran Huff, founder and ceo, Powerhouse Media Group at 347.386.9206.

What Not to Do in 2010

In 2010, I vow to NOT:
  • Be fooled by a cute boy who has goals of hanging on the block all day.
  • Post embarassing photos on Twitter, Facebook or MySpace that I have to explain to my Grandma, Mama, Daddy or the Tyra show.
  • Spend my whole check on clothes and hair.
  • Surround myself with "haters" who lack ambition.
  • Give myself excuses for not reaching my goals.
  • Let other people's drama fill my life with negativity.
  • Stop myself from living my life with the fun and fabulous-ness it deserves!
