Description

Please come out and join us for Distinctively Me's SHINE YOUR LIGHT Fundraiser and Community SHEro Award Celebration. We are raising funds for our Freedom & Flow Arts Program and celebrate our 2019 Community SHEroes, Principal Andrea Black, Dr. Leoandra Rogers, and Dr. Dinee Simpson.

Distinctively Me's Freedom & Flow summer program focuses on creative expression through writing, performance and other artistic means. The program provides a safe space for girls (13-19yrs) to share experiences and freely express their feelings. They are also given a platform that empowers them to tell their stories and give a voice to their peers. Through plays, monologues, poetry and other mediums, the intention of DM is to invoke social, cultural, and personal growth and create dialogue and solutions for important issues such as domestic violence, depression, bullying, and negative imagery among other important issues.

Distinctively Me feels it is important for girls to see images of women, who look like them, in promonent roles making a difference in their communities, to inspire and empower them to reach for greater heights in their own lives. Principal Andrea Black, Dr. Leoandra Rogers, and Dr. Dinee Simpson have dedicated their life work to breaking down barriers and creating solutions to better the lives of families in under-resourced, improverished and disenfranchised communities.

-Tasty food

-A DJ and dance floor (House music, steppers jams, old school hip hop, R&B, ect)
