Her Highness' 2017 & 2019 Summer Extravaganza

 

Her Highness hosted their 2nd Annual Summer Extravaganza for 13-18 year-old girls in Columbus County, NC on August 7 - August 11, 2017 and the 2019 event was held on Saturday, August 10, 2019.  Using a mentorship system of adult college and professional women, we discussed a multitude of matters concerning women, and the program was overall an awesome learning experience for all involved and a HUGE success! Thank you to all who participated! This year's Extravaganza will be held in Greensboro on July 25 - July 29, 2022.

Women In 
Society

We began the program on Monday by learning a lot of nice, interesting, and even funny things about each other through icebreakers! Afterwards, we talked about the importance of mentorship and girl-specific programming, using data of the well-being of adolescent girls in Columbus County, NC (including social, economic, health, and education factors). Our Executive Director and Founder, Tatyana Faulk-Frink, facilitated the event.

Our topic on Monday was Women (women on women, men on women, and the media on women). We talked about issues such as bullying, perceptions of women, and misogynistic views of women in pop culture and media. We also talked about aspects of womanhood and the importance of sisterhood. The participants used images of women and words associated with women from magazines, posted them on posterboards, and then presented their posterboards of positive and negative images of women and explained why they were positive or negative. We created "You are Beautiful" cards, with the participants writing a positive comment on every participant's card. We also viewed media from youth girl empowerment stories from around the world. 

8/9/2017:
Women's 
Health

Wednesday's topic was Women's Health. We began with a demonstration/exercise. After running for one minutes, the participants had to pinch their nose while blowing into a straw. This exercise demonstrated how hard it is for people with emphysema to breathe. Our speakers were Executive Director, Tatyana Faulk-Frink, who presented on Women's Physical Health and Latisha Corpening of Absolute Wellness Solutions, who spoke on holistic mental/psychological health, respectively. Mrs. Lucy Byrd of Families First came and spoke on Domestic Violence. The girls ended with researching a women's health issue and presenting on it.

8/8/2017:
Education

On Tuesday, our topic was Education (college preparation and readiness). We discussed aspects of college, such as the admissions process, the overall college process, and our mentors shared some of their college experiences. We also talked about SAT/ACT prep, and distributed SAT and ACT practice material books. Our Assistant Executive Director, Deondra Jenkins, presented on College prep. Participants played College Jeopardy on teams. After learning about college readiness, they also chose a college-related topic to research, create a poster project on, and then presented in groups. Afterwards, they participated in their afternoon Cultural Workshop with Dr. Fred Mottley. 

8/10/2017:
Faith & Spirituality

Thursday's Topic was Faith & Spirituality. We recalled qualities of virtuous

young women and discussed many elements of faith. One of the most

favored activities included the blindfolding activity, where one member

of a team volunteered to be blindfolded. That member had to rely on her

fellow team members to successfully navigate her around "obstacles" 

(chairs, tables, other items in the room". This activity demonstrated the 

ability of God to navigate us in our life's decision and path, and our 

ability to listen and follow! 

.............And finally.....

On Friday, we were able to sum up everything we had done/learned with the topic "Community Catalysts" and discuss the ways in which all of the things that we learned during the week could be used by each of us individually, and all of us collectively, to truly make a difference in our communities! The event was one to remember!
