Lower East Side Girls Club Madrina/Godmother Program

As many of you know, I am a mentor for an organization called the Lower East Side Girls Club. This non-profit aims to empower young girls in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan through a variety of amazing programs that they would otherwise not have access to: Sweet Things Bake Shop, Art + Community Gallery, Fairytale Yoga, Book Club, Museum Club, a summer camp, and many more.

The "Madrina" or "Godmother" program that I have committed to focuses on young girls turning 15-16 years of age- on the cusp of becoming a woman. Taking a new, empowering spin on the quincenera and sweet 16 coming of age traditions, we are raising money for each individuals' college fund. So far I have raised about half. Every little bit helps and Madrugada (my mentee) couldn't be a more deserving, intelligent, ambitious, kindhearted person. The world needs more women like her!
