GNEP: An Organization I Stand For

“A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.” – Malcolm X

GNEP is an organization I stand for.

Someone once told me, it’s not every day you can inspire somebody you don’t know but I was quick to disagree. I believe that each day of life we’re given is a day of giving, sharing and inspiring others, especially our youth and with organizations such as the GNEP we are all able to inspire somebody we do not know. I was given the privilege to play role of a Youth Leader and conduct a workout for the GNEP’s annual Sista-2-Sista Summit a few years back and boy was that an experience I’ll remember forrrr-evvvv-vahh! ☺

The Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit (“S2S”) is a one-day empowerment summit connecting 200 high school girls of Pan African descent from underserved areas across NYC with women making a difference in the areas of technology, media, law, health and wellness, medicine, entertainment, education, personal growth and development and other fields. The girls are engaged in workshops, live entertainment, and reflective activities. Utilizing a 3 step-process of self-awareness, self-appreciation, and self-actualization the workshops and activities equip participants with fundamental tools to make well-informed decisions today and in the future. ❤

And because of the profound impact this summit has among the young women that attend I wholeheartedly stand behind GNEP and its efforts for S2S!
