Diva Girls' Blog Post - April 12th (Little Divas Showcase)
This session the Little Divas had a showcase and the older Divas were invited to watch!
While the Little Divas were getting ready the older Divas and I talked about the UofT Showcase and how they felt it turned out at the end. We then talked about the sessions leading up to it and how everyone's experience went throughout it.
Soon after, we were all invited into the room the showcase was happening at and the Little Divas talked about the work they created and we were able to listen to a song the girls had created and then watched a dance they came up with together which had the message of empowerment implemented into it.
Some of the pieces the girls worked on was a wall titled "Black Girl Magic", which included letters the girls had created to people they think embody Black Girl Magic. There was also a section titled The Future which included Time Capsules the girls created. More work created was on advertising, self-portraits, Taking back Stereotypes, the word feminist and what it means to them, etc.
The younger girls were then given certificates an example being one given to someone who had the best humour and one for someone who was a good friend.
