Diva's Media Group - Vision Board

DIVA’S MEDIA GROUP

This week the girls from the Diva’s Media Group focused on enforcing positive affirmations and images through the creation of unique vision boards. This activity motivated the girls to strengthen their self-esteem. The idea of a vision board allows the girls to be surround themselves with positive images of who they want to become, where they want to travel, their desires, dream careers and much more. In order to create this vision board, the girls had to cut out pictures in magazines, newspapers and create drawings. They were able to extend their creative abilities and critically think of their future aspirations. The girls will also have the opportunity to apply this activity to their upcoming Girls Talk video, where they will engage in discussion and present their vision boards.  The divas were able to enjoy creating and developing their own unique vision boards.

The girls also identified their role models and offered individual explanations for their choices. The Diva’s expressed their advocacy for girls as they defined and acknowledged true inner beauty.

Catch da Flava Radio: New Kitchen Library in Daniels Spectrum

On tonight's Catch da Flava, We decided to introduce a new 5-minute music/art segment to the show. We thought that talking about depressing news all the time would eventually get pretty stale so every week from this day onward, we will feature some sort of art/music element to the show. We talked a little bit about the new kitchen library that will be opening on November 5th in Daniel Spectrum, as well as the tragic Russian airline crash that claimed the lives of 224 civilians, what could have brought the plane down?
