I am personally stoked to announce that we are now taking submissions for the Student Speak Out segment of the BRAVE Blog. The gist of this segment was covered in the welcome post, and here's the follow up as promised!

You do not have to be a member of a BRAVE program in order to submit your work. There is no limit on your creativity!

Follow us on Spotify! As you may know, we are currently on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat (@girlsarebrave). We decided to create a Spotify to share music that inspires us to be brave. Some playlists to look out for include "Feel Good Jams", "Staff Favorites", and "Meaghan's Women's March" playlist!
That's what's new in BRAVE. We hope to connect with you through some of these awesome new platforms! I'll leave you with Meaghan's quote of the week:
“Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up. It’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one 'dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.”
―Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Peace out y'all,
