There was no better way I could have spent the day than to end Women’s History month by Celebrating the Sista Within at the 5th Annual Sista 2 Sista Youth Summit, Saturday, March 31, 2012 at the St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY. An empowering filled day of celebrations included engaging workshops, reflective activities which addressed issues that are faced in the lives of youth, and uplifting live entertainment helped make this event a memorable one that will leave a mark in the young girl attendees lives and give them new light as enter the real world!
What better way to spend an adventure this week then to have one with a friend whom you haven’t seen in years come to the “Big Apple” and also become acquainted with a new extension for the clique. While hanging out with a dear friend, we shared our current life stories, made new stories, and reminisced on how we created this story in the first place. Different versions were thrown because of excitement, but finally the story was aligned to make us realize our course for today. If it wasn’t for the people in our lives, the love of music, and an artist by the name of Raphael Saadiq, a friendship would have never been garnered into the one established today.
