All About You! – Ms. Lina (CAC Student)
This activity is based on programming your mind, understanding, and taking control of the subconscious mind. We girls go through many things in our teenage years while we are still developing ourselves, and many emotions are involved. However, many of those times, these emotions are pushed down and attempted to be forgotten about. These emotions will eventually come back and will be worse and harder to handle. Therefore this activity is meant to help you dig deep into your thoughts and emotions to grasp what’s holding you back and learn how to control and deal with it. By the end of this activity, the girls will have learned that reprogramming their brain conditions them for success!

Girls of Maadi – girlsofmaadi
girlssofmaadi is a safe haven. It is an online community for girls to share everyday experiences without judgment. It’s a quiet revolution, yet a loud evolution of and for a better tomorrow. We discuss critical and relevant issues, where all ideas and opinions are accepted without judgment and are continuously validated. We do this while teaching young girls how to use social media as a tool to fight for change, rather than allowing it to further oppress us into a patriarchal system. Overall, it is a fun get-together for girls of all ages, where we will embrace one another wholly and honestly.

Why Girls are “Bad” at Sports – Ms. Asha (CAC Student)
Despite the eye-catching name, this workshop will discuss the systemic underlining reasoning on why women are considered inferior to men in athletics. Topics such as lack of access, lack of confidence, and decreased quality of experience will be considered in this workshop. The main issue highlighted is the social stigma around women in sports and how it bleeds over into girls’ self-confidence, not only in athletics but other aspects of life. Gender bias, cultural discrimination, and preconceived sexist ideas will be examined in relation to women’s empowerment in the field/court. Although awareness and recognition are essential with topics such as gender bias, discussing solutions will be a prime part of the workshop. Increasing self-confidence as women athletes and learning how to deal with situations where women are put down will be voiced.
Women and Life in Art – Ms. Luna (CAC Student)
Art can be a powerful medium in helping us express our inner thoughts. During this workshop, students will use art to help express insecurities, fears, and anxieties. CAC student Luna creates a safe space for students to voice their problems, insecurities, and difficulties through art.
