What Our Participants Say

DIVAS For Social Justice is helping to educate the young and the elderly about the advancing technical world.

– Bed-Stuy Patch - http://bed-stuy.patch.com/articles/divas-for-social-justice

The pictures came out so cute and we had so much fun that day! Can not wait for next week.

– Otilia Rowe, DIVAS alumna on her first week of Imaging Ourselves Photography program

I admire Shirley Chisholm because she showed women they can be anything they want.

– Olga Sanchez, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2012: Women of Bedford Stuyvesant

The photo reveals it’s true identity which is a statement to me as a human. The imperfection of the rose reflects my truth in being me.

– Shalaun Nelson, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2011: Connecting Beauty to the Environment

My favorite color is pink. This collage also represents me because of my personality. I am very bright and observant. They say I get it from my mom.

– Jada Martin Capers, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2011: Connecting Beauty to the Environment

I admire Lia Neal because she set an example for African American women all over the world.

– Ryan Sardinha, DIVAS alum - Imaging Ourselves 2012: Women of Bedford Stuyvesant

Standing out to others,
Uplifting to people when they are down,
Pink, because I am bright and stand out,
Pretty, because it attracts other people.

– Aliah Gilkes, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2011: Connecting Beauty with the Environment

Personality wise, this flower represents me because the flower has many branches sprouting from the center much like myself. From the core, my personality branches out with many emotions.

– Fatima Fuentes, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2011: Connecting Beauty with the Environment

I admire Lena Horne because she didn’t let anything stand in the way of her dreams.

– Ericka Sanchez, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2012: Women of Bedford Stuyvesant

I admire Elsie Richardson for many different reasons. Ms. Richardson emerged as a human rights fighter for Bed Stuy.

– Ashley Benjamin, DIVAS alumna - Imaging Ourselves 2013: Women of Bedford Stuyvesant
