The purpose was to bring young women together and share their stories and give advice. My mom spoke about her challenges and her journey to be where she is now. 
 She also had some of her parents and scholars in the audience too.

The food was good and the tea beverages were mixed by Nucomme of Witches Brew.

Black Girls Rock!!

On Saturday, October 15, 2011 my Mom and I went to the Black Girl Rock Award Show, taped in the Bronx at The Paradise Theatre. It was a huge event created by Ms. Beverly Bond! While I was there I was inspired by all the women who ROCK. Taraji P. Henson, Angela Davis, Laura J. Richie, Tatyana Ali, and Shirley Caesar were the few who were honored.
I took a picture with Mrs. Richie, the president of the WNBA, I started to cry because I never experienced meeting someone like her before.
I met Lil Mama, that was exciting, I like her as a judge on America's Best Dance Crew.
Tatyana Ali was really nice and looked pretty in her dress.  
K. Foxx, Hot 97 DJ.  Sometimes I get to listen to her on the radio in the morning.
Next time, I hope to meet  Lauri Ann Gibson the choreographer on her own show, "Born to Dance".
