Gobez means clever in Amharic because clever is who we are. We are smart girls aged 7 to 13 years old. As Gobez Girls we explore ourselves through the lens of culture, and the world around us.
This is our second monthly virtual session to engage Ethiopian and Eritrean girls with a variety of enriching activities.
Based on our question of the month, What is an affirmation?
We will learn about affirmations and create some together to carry with us in our daily lives.
?In this session, we are super excited to hear from BeeLyn Naihiwet. BeeLyn Naihiwet is an Ethiopian-American poet who was born in Ethiopia and immigrated with her family to the US at the age of ten. She has been getting caught (and un-caught) between these two different cultures ever since. She fell in love with poetry upon discovering Rumi in a Medieval Literature class in college. BeeLyn is a mental health therapist by training and a poet by instinct, which stirs the witness in her.
