"Being a part of the Black Girl Magic program makes me feel accepted and cared about. It's a movement where women of color can stand together and support each other. I love getting to know other smart, Black girls who I can relate to. Since COVID-19 hit. I haven't had the chance to be around people my age so Black Girl Magic has been an amazing opportunity to stay connected with my community".

"I love being able to spend time with my friends that I’ve made at these Black Girl Magic events. It helps me feel like I fit in! My favorite Black Girl Magic event is Mindfulness in the Park. It is important for young people to also do yoga, stretching, deep breathing and other wellness exercises. And we learn this and more being in the Black Girl Magic program".
