She’s the First just experienced another “first’” this week — we can hardly believe it! Our campaign (fueled by your passion!) and our first GIRLS WHO ROCK benefit concert in New York City (was on June 10, during Internet Week New York) made the cover story of Glitter, a magazine for teen girls!
Editor-in-chief Nikki Fowler attended GIRLS WHO ROCK with her teen reporters. Adding in the images of She’s the First staff photographer Kate Lord, they published a beautiful 6-page spread featuring an interview with performer Vita Chambers and a recap of the night. One of our teen fundraisers, Mackenzie Olson, was even profiled on page 53 in the “real people” section, giving advice to her peers on how to sponsor a girl!
Special congrats to Vita Chambers, who is currently rocking out with Justin Bieber on tour, on her first big cover too!
You can flip through the magazine in Flash here — let us know what you think! And we’re already planning GIRLS WHO ROCK 2011 in New York City, so feel free to share any ideas.
Thank you, Glitter!
