Black Girls Rock!

I remember when I first learned about the organization Black Girls Rock Inc., I was like "wow, what a neat organization with a fabulous name. That was a few years ago. Last nigt I watched to Black Girls Rock awards special on BET. I think (if my memory serves me correctly) this is the first time on television that black women were celebrated for their positive contributions to society while at the same time empowering and inspiring young black girls. I'm glad to see that BET finally put something of substance on their channel.

About Black Girls Rock Inc.:

BLACK GIRLS ROCK! INC. is a 501c3 nonprofit, youth empowerment mentoring organization
established as a reaction to the often seen negative images consistently imprinted upon Black women expressly in mass media. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! INC.’s mission is to encour- age positive life-changing activity and critical thinking through the arts for “at risk” teenage women of color to help foster their dreams of a better tomorrow without comprising their integrity and self-worth today. By speaking to the next generation of young women of color during their formative years on issues of self-worth, goals, and aspirations, and the images of women in our present day culture, the organization reinforces the message that young women need not objectify themselves or relinquish their autonomy. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons, and helping them to empower themselves.The name alone is an AFFIRMATION! BLACK GIRLS ROCK! has boldly taken on the crisis of our female youth of color here in America head on and understands the need for positive self-images and a strong sense of awareness. WE SEE SOLUTIONS.

College Readiness Tip for the Month: Go to Class

Even if your professor does not take attendance it is extremely important to go to class, after all that is why your going to college right? So you are probably thinking, “duh..of course I’m going to go to class”..but I say this because in college you are given so much more freedom compared to high school. Some professors do not take role, they “assume” that you will be in attendance or that you are responsible enough to study independently in the event that you are not able to make it to class. Because you have so much freedom it will be tempting for you to skip a few classes here and there…but be warned it will catch up with you. In college everything you learn in each day of class is the foundation of something else, and you will always find yourself trying to catch up on reading assignments. And then finals week comes up and you find yourself up for 24 hours trying to catch up..It’s not fun.

Media and Girls:

"They have ads of how you should dress and what you should look like and this and that, and then they say, 'but respect people for what they choose to be like.' Okay, so which do we do first?"
-Kelsey, 16, quoted in Girl Talk

The statistics are startling. The average North American girl will watch 5,000 hours of television, including 80,000 ads, before she starts kindergarten. In the United States, Saturday morning cartoons alone come with 33 commercials per hour. Commercials aimed at kids spend 55 per cent of their time showing boys building, fixing toys, or fighting. They show girls, on the other hand, spending 77 per cent of their time laughing, talking, or observing others. And while boys in commercials are shown out of the house 85 per cent of the time, more than half of the commercials featuring girls place them in the home.

Managing Time in High School {Using Time Wisley}

Ever find yourself really busy with extra curricular activities, homework, studying for standardized test, etc? Well, here are  a few great tips from Brennan Kruszewski to help you with managing your time in High School. It's best to be able to manage your time now, before you go to college and before you join the work force.
1. Find out what you like, and stick to it. The first impulse of many high school freshmen is to jump right in to every activity that presents itself. This is useful to get involved when you start high school, but ultimately not sustainable in the long run. Take some time to figure out what you really want to do with your high school career. Remember that a strong involvement in one activity can be much more fulfilling than little or no involvement in many. Instead of rushing to many activities all of the time, try instead to focus on what you’re passionate about.

2. Don’t procrastinate. This is the hardest thing for high school students to do. If you get your homework done ahead of time, however, you will have more time in the future to do things that you enjoy. Make homework a first priority and study a little bit every night. Doing so will reduce your need to cram for tests or scramble to get an assignment done minutes before it’s due. Don’t cheat yourself by procrastinating.

3. Make a schedule.This one seems obvious, but few high school students actually make schedules for themselves. Get a weekly planner or use an electronic calendar to map out your week. Seeing things on paper can show you just how hectic your schedule might be, and helps you to mentally prepare for the week ahead, as well as schedule study time.

College Tip of the Month: "Girl, Get Your Money Right"

5 Tips For Preparing for Financial Success When You Get to College

1. Don’t sign up for a gazillion credit cards.
Be very weary of the credit cards! During your first Semester of college especially the very first week, you will be bombarded with credit card companies that will be doing a lot of promoting on campus, you only need one for emergencies. Credit cards are not your friends, especially when you are getting paid minimum wage or don’t have a job at all.

2. Get a bank account, if you don’t not already have one. Look for local banks that have special programs for college students. A lot of times these bank will offer free services for students. Having a bank account will teach you financial responsibility, money management, and independence. It will provide you with the convenience of have a check card instead of always carrying cash.

3. Apply for as many scholarships/grants as possible.
Many people think that once you have applied for or received one scholarship and then you are done with applying, but that is not the case. Having as many scholarships that you can, takes the burden off of you and your parents. It takes the burden off of your parents because the cost of your college education is taken care of, and it takes the burden off of you because you will not have to be worry about your classes being cancelled for non-payment, having to worry about eating noodles all school year, and not being able to focus on your studies because the whole time you are thinking about being broke.

4. If you can get a part time job…try to get one that is related to your major.
Getting adjusted to college life is difficult enough without adding a job…whoa!. But it can be done, I did it... As a matter, if you decide to get a part time job it will give you an advantage in terms of time management. You will learn time management skills that will come in very handy as you advance in your college career and once you graduate from college. It is very possible to balance working and studying/class, still make good grades so that you can eliminate the chances of graduating in debt. Another thing to keep in mind is to try to get a job that is related to your major. For example; if your major is nursing, try to get a job at a hospital, if your major is journalism look for a job at a local television news station or with a news paper, if your major is finance try a Bank.. and so on. What this does is help you to start getting the experience early before you even start an internship, and it also builds your resume.

5. Use financial aid refund checks wisely.
There is so much I can say about this one. Let me explain the financial aid refund checks. When you are awarded financial aid that exceeds the amount that your tuition is for that semester, the financial aid office will issue you a check for the remainder of the balance. Example: Your tuition is $4,700 for the semester; you have been awarded $7,700 in financial aid which includes grants, scholarships and student loans. $7,700 is applied t0 your student account and the $4,700 is taken care of. $7,700-$4,700= $3,000 You now have a remainder of $3,000 from your financial aid, so you will be issued a check for $3,000. This is where many people mess up at. When and if you are one of the students that will get a refund check …DO NOT USE THIS MONEY ON PARTYING, TAKING YOUR FRIENDS OUT TO EAT…etc.. You get what I’m saying. It’s very important that you use this money for something very useful, like placing it into an interest bearing account.

April 22. 2010: National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

"Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® program goes beyond the average “shadow” an adult. Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, and providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success. Each year, we develop new interactive activities and partnerships that will assist us in taking girls and boys to the future they dream of. "
"There is no such thing as a too wild dream, too big a hope, too fantastic a wish, too hard a goal."

College Tip Of the Month: Summer School

There is nothing wrong with going to Summer school…at all. While you are in school during the semester you will probably think to yourself, “I can’t wait until the summer do I can just chill..”. But that may not always be the best thing for you. Sometimes taking a semester break may throw you off a bit when you do return to school the following semester. You can still go to summer school and you don’t have to take a full load of classes. Even if you take just one class, it’s still better than nothing. If you are really certain that taking an entire semester is something you need to do, consider doing an internship, working a job that is related to your major, or even ding some volunteer work during the summer. Whatever it is that you decide to do make sure you keep your self busy.

College Readiness Tip of the Week: Study

A really good tip that I received from one of my professors when I was in College was to not only read the material before class, but to read the material again after class the same day. I know, I know this sound very time consuming, but honestly this is one of the best ways to study, and this is the reason why you are in college in the first place. One way that you can prepare for the next class is with questions for the instructor that you’ve come up with during class and while you are studying. That way your professor sees that you are involved and you care about learning. You never know when you eagerness is going to come in handy, especially when you need that extra point to make it to the next letter grade.

College Readiness Tip of the Week: Scholarships

Apply for as many scholarships as possible. Many people think that once you have applied for or received one scholarship, you are done with the scholarship search, but that's not the case. Apply for as many scholarships that you can. This takes the burden off of you and your parents. It takes the burden off of your parents because the cost of your college education is taken care of, and it takes the burden off of you because you will not have to be worried about your classes being canceled for nonpayment. And it will also keep you from not being able to focus on your studies because the whole time you are think about not having money.
