Hey ,

Spring is on its way!

You can try something new or change what you've been promising to change for a long time. Think of yourself as a flower growing in spring by asking these questions:
  • What seeds will I plant to change my life (make plans)?
  • How will I nurture myself (eat right, exercise, get enough sleep)?
  • What can I do to grow and have a happy life (get rid of negative habits)?
  • How can I keep the weeds out of my garden (negative people)?
Spring is a season for growth and fun. We've included information on two upcoming teen events that will help you to do both!

For all you recessionistas out there, this is also fabulous time to spice up your wardrobe with shoes or a handbag. Try your local Target, also called Tar-jay, or Payless. Many styles are available for $25 or less. Don't go the easy route and grab black ones either. Take a chance and buy some of the yummy colors like turquoise, white, purple, hot pink or even metallic. Plus, you can send us some pics with your new shoes or handbag and we'll feature you in our next issue.

Have a wonderful spring,
Sister 2 Sister Youth Summit!!
The Gye-Nyame Empowerment Project (GNEP) will present its 3rd Annual Youth Summit on Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 9 AM to 9 PM at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY.

The GNEP Youth Summit is an event for over 100 high schools girls. It includes panels and workshops on setting goals for college or careers, tips on staying healthy, developing good financial habits and the representation of women in the media. This is a great event and I have the pleasure of being a workshop leader at the event again this year!

Please note: This is a FREE event, but you must register to attend.
