Hello WORLD!!!!!!! We are two girls from Proyecto Mariposas, named Andrea y Lisette. We are at the summer camp, and this year’s theme is Brave, Strong, and Fierce. The activities we do are projects that help in the future. We have guest speakers coming in helping us become and learn about being brave and strong. Throughout this week we will talk more about the good things about being a girl in this world today. During the week we will watch TED talks about standing up for women kind. We think that being a girl means doing what you put your mind to. Also, a fact that we learned on Monday and Tuesday is that girls have been taught perfection, while boys are being taught bravery and that girls are expected to be more fragile and careful about their actions while boys are expected to be more rough and are encouraged to try more things and be more adventurous. Later on this week, we will blog our accomplishments and more. SEE Y’ALL LATER!!!!! BYEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
