Meet the viBe Girls!
viBe's mission and work is all about the girls we serve through our performing-arts and outreach programs. By taking part in viBe's various programs, the viBe girls find a voice and learn to express themselves and share the daily and exceptional experiences that define their lives as teenage girls in New York City. Meet the viBe girls and hear from them how viBe Theater Experience has impacted their lives:
MJ, 19 years old, is a recent graduate of Brooklyn High School for the Arts. MJ is headed to SUNY Buffalo for college. While in high school, MJ participated in every viBe program! Here is what she has to say about how her time in viBe impacted her:
What has been the benefit of taking part in viBe's programs?
Participating in viBe programs inspired me to continue writing and performing. viBe gave me a place to go, and something to do. viBe also gave me freedom, in a non-judgemental environment.
What was your favorite memory from your time with viBe?
Meeting my best friend, Briana!
What do you plan to do after you graduate?
I plan to get my M.A., then Ph.D. and move to California to help empower young girls through fashion.
