"My favorite thing about the Lower Eastside Girls Club is the fun opportunities that are provided here as well as the trips and classes. [In ten years] I see myself becoming a self-made artist, entrepreneur, make up artist and a clothing print and designer!" — Caress, age 15
#GirlsOfGram is our monthly Instagram love letter to women. Each month, we’re shining a bright light on individuals with stories worth a follow. 💗
For #WomensHistoryMonth , our #GirlsOfGram are girls who are a part of the Lower Eastside Girls Club @girlsclubny. The Lower Eastside Girls Club is a community that aims to empower young women to reach their highest potential and to be fearless about raising their voices. This space provides young women with access to a female mentor who helps them learn the value of their health, find their passion and joy, master 21st century skills, develop networks, and feel confident and empowered.
