What does Modern Girls mean to you? i’ve always found home in sisterhood, i was born and bred in the arms and the image of strong women. as a first generation immigrant of african & caribbean descent, my childhood was built on the backs of strong women who sacrificed and sacrificed again to give me the life and voice i have today. being a modern girl is taking my place in this time honored lineage of women supporting other women. being a modern girl is breaking the cult of silence, it is building a community for all girls—the underrepresented and underpriviledged, the misrepresented and the misunderstood, the oppressed and the deliberately unheard—to come together and become the fullest versions of themselves, filled with passon, love, and light.
