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.
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!
As summer comes to an end, we reflect on all the great things that have taken place.
In addition to our first every Global BlessedGirls Summer Camp in Guyana, South America we held our every 1st Youth Leadership Meeting at the University of Westminster in London, UK!
August 18, 2019, BlessedGirls gathered youth from London and the United States on the beautiful Marylebone Campus at the University of Westminster. The teenagers shared in a panel discussion on their roles as influencers in the community. They also identified those who have influenced them personally.
Anana Phifer-Derilhomme to trained along side fellow John Maxwell Team member Titi Timowo. Anana gave the teenagers a preliminary DISC profile assessment which reveals their personality styles and possible career paths. Titi empowered the youth with “I Am” statements to affirm their strengths, identity and growth opportunities.
We had the pleasure of having a exceptional British teenager artist, speaker, entrepreneur, and author Shernorva Abioma. Shernova shared her story of success and strategies for reaching your full potential.
It was a great event for the youth and the adults who attended. We will continue to empower, educate and inspire youth around the world.
