The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars
So whenever you feel alone
Just remember those kings will always be up there to guide you
Our identities are interconnected with our culture, our history, and our social experiences
Our histories are richer than an experience of oppression. As we learn, explore, and understand the history that developed our ancestors and our wisdom, we learn to develop our own identities. We learn to build our knowledge and wisdom based on our own truths, and empower ourselves to become strong leaders.
Learning about cultural strengths, beliefs and practices will guide young women to define their identities. Our culture helps to create solid foundations in understanding ourselves. These workshops build on cultural knowledge, understanding, and principles for living. The workshops also explore key themes in systemic racism, equity and inclusive practices.
These workshops explore history outside of what is taught in schools, and highlight excellence with African, Caribbean, Indigenous, and Asian cultures. These workshops examine and encourage critical thinking and analysis in understanding principles and beliefs incorporated in culture, and how society developed.
These workshops examine early beliefs and practices within culture, knowledge, and healing practices. Our elders share their stories, and histories with participants, and guide them to a greater understanding of the trials and successes of their ancestors.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?
