Introducing “Girlhood” | Village Bloggurls Zine Volume 4

This year, the CH Best Bloggurls and The Village Bloggurls worked together on the 4th zine entitled, “Girlhood: Do We Have To Be Perfect?”. As the name suggests, this zine is all about what it means to be a girl in the 21st century – the challenges, the surprises, the fun, the boring and everything in between. We used magazine pictures, drawings and text to remix the ideas about the complexity of girlhood. Please share and enjoy!

Hidden Figures: A Review By Village Bloggurls

By: Diana and Jiale

505-asset-page

Hidden Figures is about the journey of 3 Black women – Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Mary Jackson (Janelle Monaé) and Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) –  who worked in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in NASA in 1961. Their goal was to send John Glenn, an American Senator from Ohio, into space to orbit around the earth before the Russians. The 3 women were called “computers” because they would do the math and space calculations and make sure they were accurate.

VBG Sleepover Extravaganza!

Friday Dec. 16, 2016.

The Village Bloggurls did something we’ve never done before in the history of ANC Lotherton…

We had a massive sleepover…in the program space!

Yes, it was fun.

Yes, it was full of magical moments.

Yes, there was (too much) pizza.

Yes, we had all the sugar in the world in one room…before heading to sleep.

Yes, we stayed up all night.

But most importantly, we grew closer together. We reninisced and spoke in each other in ways that demonstrate what having a solid foundatiom of friendship looks like.

The Village Bloggurls has been around since 2012, and we have seen over 40 girls grow up together before our eyes. Even though this year is the start of a new cycle, the mentees are now able to connect on a deeper level because of their shared experiences in this program. The icing on the cake? Previous members of the Village Bloggurls program came back! The sleepover gave way for them to connect and catch up!

There is a real power in having spaces for girls to be and have fun. It didn’t feel like work that day; it felt like a celebration.

Until next year!
