Hi, Junior Divas!
I’m so excited to share with you my very first blog as the creative director and moderator of Junior Divas. It gives me an opportunity to do what I love – read and write! – while also being involved in a really cool program for girls and young women. I can’t wait to hear from each and every one of you; stay tuned for opportunities to participate in loads of online activities, or even become a Junior Diva Blogger!
But before we get to all the fun stuff, let me introduce myself. I’ll (finally!) be graduating from college in the spring with a degree in English and professional writing. Right now I’m also on the staff of my university newspaper; I write news and feature articles in addition to a monthly style column. And in the spring, I start an internship with a style magazine. I can’t wait to share all the details with you!
Dabney has been a close friend of mine, and a wonderfully positive influence in my life, for years. When she told me about her idea for Junior Divas, I knew immediately that it would be a great way to bring girls together – just like us! – to build friendships and support each other. Of course, I was thrilled when she offered me this position, where I get to work directly with all of the JD’s… after all, Junior Divas is about you!
We all know how exciting/terrifying/challenging/amazing it is to be a girl. It’s complicated, and it’s confusing. But Junior Divas are the girls who can handle it all and help their friends do the same. We’ve embraced the journey of “growing up” and we’re enjoying the path we walk to get there… because being a girl is fun.
Are you already a Junior Diva? Or do you need just a little help getting there? This is the place where you can become exactly the girl you want to be.
Welcome, girls. This is just the beginning. Check back soon to read my blog and meet our first Junior Diva Bloggers. Are you interested? Send me a sample blog that briefly introduces yourself and explains either what you think it means to be a Junior Diva, or talk about a moment in your life where you learned an unforgettable lesson.
I can’t wait to hear your stories!
Till then… au revoir!
