Everyone’s aflutter at She’s the First gearing up for our first ever Voice Your Verse poetry campaign. The goal is to compile an anthology of original poetry written by YOU, and 100% of the profits will go toward funding girls’ education. What are you waiting for? Submit your original poems!
Not only will you have the chance to have your work published, but you could win a $500 college scholarship and Chegg for Good is MATCHING that with a $500 scholarship for Jancy, a student we sponsor at Shanti Bhavan!
We were first introduced to Jancy when She’s the First started sponsoring her through funds raised at the She’s the First Soiree held in November 2010. She soon found herself with a network of new friends through the She’s the First Digital Pen Pal program, and this past Fall, she put her passion for art and design to good use by judging the Tie-Dye Cupcake T-Shirt Design contest.
Jancy is now a senior at Shanti Bhavan and will be graduating in June (we’ll be attending!). Though she will miss Shanti Bhavan, she is eagerly looking forward to going to college to study business (and eventually wants to get her MBA). Check out the video below to hear from Jancy herself on her hopes for the future and her reflections on her time spent at Shanti Bhavan.
