The 4C’s Youth Civility

The 4 C’s are Civility, Community, Creativity and Climate Change. BlessedGirl Founder, Dr. Anana Phifer-Derilhomme created this platform and curriculum to allow young people to see themselves as a solution by creating opportunity for them to learn, develop, speak and write about one are multiple C’s. Often adults consider youth especially troubled youth or disadvantaged youth as the problem. Dr. Anana wants to change that narrative and provide a way for young people to see themselves as a solution to the problems in their own community. We need our young people to be empowered with possibility and tap into their creativity and make change happen.

 “Let us not discount our young people but rather let us invest and believe in them.” Dr. Anana Phifer-Derilhomme.

Panties & Pads Project Day 1

Many girls stay home from school when they have their period and miss out on their education.

Girls most commonly dropout of school after Grade 6 because there aren’t private latrines where they can relieve themselves safely or manage their menstrual cycle. When girls stay in school longer, they are more likely to start their own businesses and, in turn, it has been shown that women are more likely to reinvest profits from business to promote their family’s health, children’s education, and future business growth.

For every year a girl spends in school she raises her family income by up to 20%.

Lack of education for girls contributes to early marriage, higher birth rates, and lower income. 

BlessedGirls Burundi Mentors are making a difference! Our team served, trained and provided panties & sanitary pads to over 100 girls in Gatumba at the Thanksgiving Church (Pastor Immanuel). 
Thanks to generous donations all girls were provided panties, pads, educated on how to use the pads and care for their bodies during their cycle. 

Your donation of:
$25 serves 8 girls
$50 serves 16 girls
$100 serves 30 girls
$200 serves 60 girls
Help us continue our work the Donation

Together we can make the world a better place and help every girl know she is BLESSED!

Be Bold
Be You 
Be Blessed

I Am BlessedGirl Essay Winner!

BlessedGirls are leading around the world!

This past summer we held our first global leadership summer academy in Georgetown, Guyana. Following the summer academy we offer monthly workshop to continue our academic, social and  personal development training. At our Fall BlessedGirls Global meeting the girls were trained on the power of influence and their ability to positively influence their classmates and community as they began a new school year,

The girls were offered the opportunity to participate in a essay contest. Assigned title of the essay was “I am BlessedGirl and I influence other by……”
Landra Richards is our essay winner. Landra is an 18 year old college student studying biology at the University of Guyana. She submitted an essay that truly conveys the values and mission of BlessedGirls.

Landra will receive a custom BlessedGirls hoodie and a Visa gift card.
Here’s an exert from her piece.

Help us celebrate our winner!

“Being able to positively influencing others began with me being BOLD enough to be myself. When I am able to fall in love with the gifts God has drilled into me and express myself with confidence, this same energy passes on to my peers that are itching do the same because then they think ”if she can do it, so can I”. I influence others by advocating for Equality for everyone from all walks of life. Frances Wright said that “Equality is the soul of liberty; there is, in fact, no liberty without it”, everyone deserves to be free but creativity and individuality is compromised when we act unfairly. For this reason I believe it’s important to stress on the right for equality. I am Determined to achieve great things, the goal of global equality included. Being a positive influence to others invokes that motivation that everyone needed as kid, however, like me, many people have grown without this. Nevertheless, I still choose to be bold, to lead, excel, shine, soar, strive for equality and stay determined!
I am Blessedgirl. I positively influence others. Now it’s your turn to do the same”

We are super proud of Landra and look forward to her continued success!
Stay tuned! We have some amazing young ladies doing incredible things!

Be Bold!
Be You!
Be BlessedGirl!

Here we’ll talk about how Zithromax is made, how to buy it online, and how you can take it. This list may be short enough for some people. So if you’re not quite certain it is right for your family, let’s get started and be safe with your medication.

How Does Zithromax Work? Zithromax, also called dosing for bacterial overgrowth is another of the medications used to treat oral bacterial overgrowth. Dosing helps remove microbes that may be making the area of the lower jaw painful. It is also used for the treatment of a variety of conditions, including dental plaque buildup as well as gum problems including brittle growth.

Zithromax and the Oral Bacteria: Bacterial Overgrowth?

In most people with bacterial overgrowth, the oral cavity cannot take care of itself, so oral medications like antibiotics or probiotics must be taken as well. As long as you use a oral antibiotic or probiotic for treatment, they’re not harmful to the oral area.

But how does a typical oral antibiotic act? Basically, the mouth-clearing agent takes a drug called antimicrobial peptide, which is also known as PHA for short. PHA is a hormone that gets released in the saliva from the body when you chew your food and inhale. If you take certain antibiotics such as quinine or other antibiotics during the day, the mouth-clearing agent will only leave behind these hormones in the saliva and not in the patient’s mouth.

In the patient’s oral area the stomach wall absorbs the hormone released by the PHA (the hormone that helps the stomach absorb certain nutrients). This results in bacteria being created in the mouth as well as in the mouth itself.

However, because the stomach keeps the hormone secreted in the saliva secretes the PHA in the stomach for the bacteria to be absorbed. The stomach keeps the hormone secreted in the stomach secreted to the mouth and not in the patient’s mouth. However, this hormone is easily eliminated from the stomach and is not retained by the gut.

So what does the stomach do with this hormone if it’s used to keep the stomach secreted by the stomach? The stomach simply passes it to your intestine. The intestine then converts the hormone into two more hormones: insulin and glucagon. These hormones also give muscle a pump.

After you have absorbed the hormone, the hormones are stored in the blood. They’re not They should see a dermatologist who has experience in dermatology, a pediatricians’ office, and a specialist’s office. They should talk to a dermatologist or a dentist for more information about the treatment of you teeth, gums, and other body areas. Even doctors’ offices will need additional training on Zithromax. You do not have to use Zithromax every day. Sometimes, you can take Zithromax in 4 to 6 days per week. As long as it looks good with no side effects, you will probably be fine if you choose to. Zithromax may seem like a prescription drug, but it is actually a great product, not just for treating bacterial infections but also for treating many other conditions that you may experience in your body

Zithromax can cause diarrhea and vomiting. It may be best to treat symptoms of diarrhea with antihistamine or alcohol enemas, such as a low-dose oral antihistamine called Ritalin. If you have to avoid the bathroom on the day of treatment or take an antihistamine to ease pain, stop using the medication. A medication called Zincprednisolone, or ZDPS, seems to have some ability to improve kidney function if given without any medical history. You will be told the difference between Zithromax and other drugs . Zithromax may contain several ingredients or are sold separately.

It can cause bleeding gums or black spots.

Do not stop taking Zithromax without your doctor’s permission, especially if you are at risk of kidney damage if Z The doctor’s office has to get your order and then make sure if there are any mistakes or side effects, or if you are at risk of them during treatment. These can happen in the first 24 hours so it is important for you to speak with the doctor or nurse in advance if you need anything and ask as much questions as possible.<|endoftext|>We all like to think that our food is made of healthful and nutritious ingredients. However, what if you are not sure if what you are eating is 100% healthy? That question needs to be answered for our own health.

Drink lots of water, eat lots of fruit and vegetables each day and consume the right types of healthy fats and proteins. The goal of a healthy lifestyle is to get enough energy without compromising your energy status.

While a healthy diet is all that is required to meet your daily needs, there is a way to achieve high energy and avoid the weight gain that is associated with type 2 diabetes, type 1 and the metabolic syndrome. So even if you’re not an accomplished chef or are not as passionate about your food, you could be helping someone get the healthiest food possible.

What are healthy foods?

Your body is constantly producing different energy systems.

Food, for example, can get rid of calories if it is consumed in the right proportions. Foods that are too sweet or salty cause the hormones that make us hungry to surge in some way. Some foods contain high amounts of omega-3 fats and the protein that helps people to fight off diseases, such as diabetes, or may help you with your weight loss.

So what are the types of foods your body can convert into energy that provide more energy?

The most popular sources of energy in the U.S. are plant foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes (like soy), low-fat dairy products (like almond, soy and nut milk), and lean meat (from pork and poultry).

Healthy fats (especially omega-6, which is found in fish, oily fish, and nuts) may help build up certain hormones needed to keep us alive.

Protein and other healthy fats can help support your blood sugar by giving us the energy we need when we need it.

In fact, you can consume plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains each day to increase your body’s ability to absorb those vital nutrients from your meals, without adding to your overall weight. These foods may also provide extra energy However, medication is taken by oral delivery to reduce your risk of developing serious side effects. These side effects such as diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain, headache, constipation, muscle aches, and vomiting have been reported. Zithromax is effective in stopping these rare side effects for everyone. Your health care professionals should refer you to your doctor if your prescription is filled up by Zithromax. The Zithromax side Effects summary explains the Zithromax side effects. It is recommended that you contact your doctor if you are taking Zithromax. Zithromax Side Effects A common problem with zithromax is diarrhea as described by The Food and Drug Administration website. Some patients also use it for indigestion. Most people will have trouble absorbing the medication even without any discomfort. You may experience a slight loss of appetite or a very slight weight gain. Some people may experience cramping or bleeding in the armpits. If you have other side effects, your doctor needs to inform you so that he can stop you from using it (e.g., severe headaches, fever). More common than the diarrhea is vomiting (including diarrhea) and flatulence. If these happen, they will probably disappear without any further treatment. Zithromax Side Effects A severe side effect that is frequently missed by doctors is the flatulence and/or diarrhea. This condition causes problems with digestion and is known as gastroesophageal reflux disease. It can be seen in up to 30% of people who take antibiotics and only 40% will find that the flatulence will improve with a reduced dosage of antibiotic. Zithromax Side Effects Zithromax can affect almost any of us and it is best to avoid it on your next refill or prescription. It is important to discuss the side effects with your doctor. If you suspect that you or anyone else will develop these serious side effects, a doctor will want to know and will refer you to a doctor who will treat this problem. Zithromax Side Effects can be managed with our information sheets.

Zithromax Side Effects A common side effect that is often missed by doctors is the flatulence and/or diarrhea. The flatulence, it’s associated problems, and the other side effects described above are not caused by zithromycin.

Dental health experts provide your doctor with information on everything from hygiene to oral hygiene. So this is the job of a dentist. There are various courses that you can take with the help of a medical professional. These include: Prebiotics: Some dentist students learn how to create prebiotics, which are bacteria that are beneficial to dental health. For a healthy mouth, these bacteria are very important. They can help fill cavities, increase healthy saliva, and help teeth heal faster.

Women Move the World-Women’s March 2019

“Never forget where we came from and always praise the bridges that carried us over.” Fannie Lou Hamer

I had the pleasure to join thousands of people at the National Women’s March on January 19, 2019. I marched with women, girls, men and boys in Atlantic City New Jersey. The experience inspired me. Have you ever attended an event or heard a message that simply moved your soul? Marching with this group, hearing from our Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver and many Freeholders and community leaders encouraged me to remember my history and take action to “make history”.

To walk, dance, sing and shout with perfect strangers on a mission to lift our voices and move the world. 

This particular march was not just a women’s march. It was a historical, commemorative event that honored the life and legacy of Fannie Lou Hamer. It was 55 years ago in 1964 that Ms. Fannie Lou Hamer and the Mississippi Freedom Party sough to take their rightful seats at the 1964 Democratic Convention which was held in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The exact auditorium we sat in was the same venue Ms. Hamer traveled to from Mississippi to testify about the brutality of Jim Crow and segregation.

Unfortunately,  knew very little about Ms. Hamer before attending the march. I vaguely recall she was a civil rights leader in the 60’s and was influential in the voter’s right movements. I had know idea how powerful, courageous, and strategic this woman was. You are now encouraged to look Ms Fannie Lou Hamer up. Share your thoughts and insights with me at [email protected].

You see, I am blessed. I stand on the shoulders of many bold, confident, resilient, progressive Black women. I will never forget where we came from as a people. The future is female. It’s time for women of all colors, religions, ethnicities, cultures, nationalities to Stand Up, Raise our Voices and Move the World in a positive direction just like Ms. Fannie Lou Hamer did.

I salute all the women that took a stand and ran for political office in November during the Mid-Term elections.

The outcomes were great and we can do so much more!

Let’s move the world

I am BlessedGirl



Shoot Your Shot

2019 Is  Here!

Shoot Your Shot!

This past weekend I watched the Golden Globe Awards. Actress Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for her role in “If Beale Street Could Talk”.  During her acceptance speech she declared she would make sure that her projects going forward would employ 50% women.

This was a huge declaration. No one has ever made such a statement on this platform. Being the founder of BlessedGirls (mentorship program for girls) and a passionate advocate for equal rights, I was so proud of her desire to assure that females will be represented equally in her work.

The following morning she was interviewed on CBS. Regina was asked about her declaration. She said “I figured I would shoot my shot”.

When I heard her say that it really resonated with me. Honestly, when she made her speech I was moved by her bravery and passion to assure that she would work with more woman. I was inspired and encouraged that she took a stand and thus will make a difference in Hollywood and perhaps around the world.

Once I saw her interviewed I was even more inspired by her candor and humility. She knew she was taking a chance by making that statement. However as she said she took her shot.

It got me thinking……

Am I taking my shot?

Are you taking your shot?

Often times opportunities present themselves and we have to decide whether we will take the opportunity or wait for the next one? The ball is in your hands. Will you take the shot, pass the ball or go sit on the bench?

Most opportunities involve a risk. Surely Regina King didn’t know how the audience or her colleagues would respond to her declaration. But that didn’t matter. She took her shot.

Many times we will have to take a risk and shoot your shot. I recall times in my life as a speaker, business owner, administrator and even as a parent I had to take my shot. There were many times in my career that I had to take my shot and bet on me.

Have you ever been in a meeting or at a event and they ask for volunteers? You’re not sure what your volunteering for but you do? You took your shot. Funny thing is. The more shots you take the more comfortable you will becoming at ‘shooting your shot’.

Have you ever been put on the spot to sing, dance, or read your poetry? Did you take your shot and share your gift?

Have you ever had this great idea to share with your boss? In idea that would improve a process or increase employee or customer satisfaction? Did you shoot your shot and share with your boss?

Did you ever have an idea for an invention? Something that would change the way people do things? One day you look up and see a commercial for a product that you had an idea for? You didn’t shoot your shot.

Or one last thing. Did you have a chance to meet or speak to someone you admired? Did you speak to them or stand in the background and watch others approach he/she and get their questions answered and pictures taken? Or did you shoot your shot and meet the person?

These are just a few examples of TAKING YOUR SHOT!

I am the mother to 3 wonderful boys. Each of my boys play various sports. my younger sons are currently playing soccer and basketball. Many times as I watch them play, I am on the sidelines screaming “take the shot”! Why is that something I have to encourage them to do? Surely, they’re on the team to contribute and help the team win. Why do they need me to tell them to take the shot?

Often times the boys are not confident enough in their ability to make the shot. They’re afraid of being judged if they miss the shot.

Is that why you and I don’t take the shots presented to us in life?

Well allow me to be your coach today. I am on the sidelines yelling “shoot your shot”!

Michael Jordan possibly one of the greatest basketball players of all times said this. ” I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my like. And that is why I succeed.” How can one of the most successful athletes of all times admit to missing shots? He was so successful simply because he always took his shot.

I conclude that in order to succeed, you must take the shot. It doesn’t matter whether you make the shot. Take the shot with courage and confidence. It doesn’t matter if you make the shot. What matters most is that you took the shot.

Life is not a dress rehearsal. We have one life to live. We have one game to play. When you get the ball, take the shot!

Your team is depending on you! The world is waiting on you to Shoot Your Shot!
