"I wanted to create a safe space where there were fewer routines, with raw, real, conversations, which turns into more action. A place where seasoned adults pass down their wisdom and savvy "youngins" toss up their knowledge. A place where girls and women don't feel they need permission to be great. Where being assertive, knowing what you want and aspiring to be more than an assistant, someone's domestic partner or caregiver isn’t viewed as a bad thing. I was so lost, waiting for happiness and growth to appear magically. I was often told to "be happy, love yourself, figure it out, do better," but no one ever showed me how to achieve these things. I envision BLCNY being that "how to" blueprint place for all, especially for girls and women."
