On Tuesday, March 27, 2012, the Emerald Glen Apartment Girls Circle participated in a poetry slam with a microphone in front of an audience including Janae Littlejohn, the National Plus Teen USA Ambassador. All the girls shared a piece that they wrote or something that struck a chord inside of them. The mic brought something out of them, a certain energy and strength. They all clapped after a reading. They also got to ask questions to Janae and hear her spoken word poetry too.
After the poetry slam, AmeriCorps members, Aisha Upton & Frankie Lee, gave out 9 awards for perfect attendance for Winter season and 3 special awards granted to girls that struck a chord with the Girls Circle Philosophy: Helping Hands, Respectful Leader and GC Warrior. Everyone shared bubble gum and took fun snap shots with Janae before ending this fun evening.
Great job EG Girls!
