     Smart and blue. Creative and glitter. Loud and markers. Or just "Don Diva." This week the GET girls presented their posters. The posters represented a fellow member that they had interviewed. With questions like, "What is your greatest accomplishment," the girls had to search the past and find out what has made them feel truly accomplished. Pushed by their mentors to think of things that have helped shaped them, the answers rolled to the tune of "When I help take care of my siblings." Or "When I served the homeless."

     The girls decorated their posters of each other and presented them proudly for the camera. They had to pick one word to describe themselves and words like creative, leader, and smart took top 3. The project helped the girls get to know someone they might not have talked to before. It also made them think about what good they have done in their lives, and that every small part makes a big difference. Overall the posters and conversations with each other helped the girls 'GET' together and find something about themselves that they could like.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
