FOR THE LOVE OF BLACK GIRLS,
UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT
UYS 2014 GOES TO WASHINGTON, D.C.!
In celebration of year five, we’re headed to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., September 13-14, 2014, on the campus of GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY! Get involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CALLING ALL GIRLS: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C. & Virginia!
We understand, recognize, and fervently believe that young women who are cultured and open-minded possess the power to lead with compassion, courage, confidence and creativity. With this core belief in place, we have themed the 5th Annual UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT for Girls: “EXPAND YOUR WORLD.” In the spirit of tradition and transformation, we will again embolden 500 black middle and high school girls to open themselves up to new experiences and new possibilities, as they expand their imagination, spirit and world in Washington, D.C. — a city historically rooted in transformation and tradition!
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
We’ve accepted the charge: challenging their outlook on the shape of their own future; exposing them to opportunities outside of their communities and neighborhoods; inspiring them to be trailblazers; and increasing their global awareness and compassion for the rights of women and girls all over the world. Will you join us in encouraging them to EXPAND THEIR WORLD?
Over the past four years UYS has had the unique opportunity to challenge more than 2000 girls throughout the Delaware Valley to become their best selves! We have encouraged them to “Become Who They Are”, empowered them to think and act “Beautifully, Brilliantly, and Bravely”, introduced them to the foundation of being “Uniquely” themselves and asked them to declare—I AM!
Since 2009, we have continuously impressed upon girls (11-18) the importance of recognizing the incessant and damaging images propagandized and cultivated by the media. We’ve aided them in identifying these images and the overwhelming impact they have on their daily ability to be sensible, confident, and hopeful young women. With the help of prominent and accomplished role models, like: MC Lyte, Mara Brock Akil, Dr. Yaba Blay, Amanda Seales, Tai Beauchamp, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Dr. Robin L. Smith, Kim Coles, Tracey Ferguson, and so many others, the Uniquely You Summit for Girls, each year, has been able to authenticate the power in making healthy and positive life choices. The mission of UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT, INC. is to help black girls uniquely define, discover and become who they are.
