Designing Your Future

Participant in the Daughters of Destiny Vision Board activity led by Khadijah Z. Ali-Coleman

On Saturday, Feb. 12, I facilitated, through my consultant brand So Our Youth Aspire (S.O.Y.A.),  a three-hour self-awareness activity with young ladies in the Daughters of Destiny program, a youth program under the auspices of the women’s organization Sisters4Sisters, Inc., led by Executive Director Carolyn White-Washington. The girls ranged in age from 8 to 16 years-old and worked creating Vision Boards that helped them articulate their visions for their future through images and visualization. I reinforced with the girls how they are the chief person in charge of “designing your future”. Read more about Sisters4Sisters here and the wonderful work that they are doing in the community.

Mark your calendar for my upcoming writing workshop, “Writing Your Life Story”,  sponsored by the Prince George’s County Public Library System. Here’s a summary of the workshop:

You think you have an interesting life story to tell? Want to document your life experiences in a compelling form that will engage readers? If you answered yes, then this workshop is for you! Whether you want to write your memoirs for your public blog, for a book or your private journal, this workshop will get you started and lend valuable tips to completing your own memoir writing project. The workshop is led by Liberated Muse’s Khadijah “Moon” Ali-Coleman, editor of the book Liberated Muse Volume I: How I Freed My Soul (Outskirts Press, 2009) and a professional blogger. This is a free writing workshop, but space is limited, so arrive early.
