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!
