We've had some beautiful weather in NYC! I've been enjoying it as much as I can. For those of you who celebrate Easter, I hope you had a great day.
In this issue, we are covering the Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit. It's a fab event for teen girls and if you haven't been, you should make it a goal for next year! The event is written on our new Double Dutch website. Check it out and let us know what you think. Read the blog about the event and don't forget to click on the links, which will take you other great articles and video, too.
The tax deadline is right around the corner. Even though you may not pay taxes, it's important to develop healthy tax habits now. Lastly, read some of our most recent blog posts you may have missed below.

|Start Healthy Money Habits Now|
You may not be old enough to pay taxes yet, but you can develop healthy habits now.
Here are 5 Ways to Healthy Money Habits:
1. If you have a job, put some money in a savings account. You can save the money for school trips, college application expenses and expenses for senior year in high school (Prom, class ring, cap & gown, etc.).
2. Learn to say 'no' to yourself when shopping. You may want the new iPad, but you may need to wait until you can save or pay for more important expenses like expenses for high school or college (See suggestion #1).
3. Ask questions when your parents are paying bills. One day you will be on your own and will need to know how to manage a checking or savings account and how to do online banking.
4. Learn how to shop for groceries. If you know how to do this and cook, you will save money on food. Instead of spending $10-$15 a day on lunch or dinner at a fast food place or restaurant when you start working, you can use that money to buy a week's worth of groceries.
5. Shop for bargains. Look for free events in your area. Shop for clothes and shoes at discount stores and thrift stores.
We are looking for teens bloggers! Get some shine, see your name is lights and become one of our regular bloggers. Volunteer one entry per week and share the topics that are important to you: celebs, music, boys, film, poetry, etc.
