Update #2: Second Week of Giving

May 18, 2017

It's our second week of crowdfunding! A big thanks to everyone who gave their gift this week! 

For this week's update we want to get the other side of the FemGeniuses story and talk to our collaborators and educators who our students worked closely with:

"“I was very impressed about the openness, thirst for knowledge and capacity for critical enquiry that these 9 young women – or better said-  the  FemGenuiuses group displayed during our interaction at the Clara Zetkin Museum in Birkenwerder.  And the term interaction best describes, I think, our encounter. The lecture was indeed an equal exchange of information, ideas and wisdom in both directions. "

-Cassandra Ellerbe-Dück, International Event & Congress Academy

"It was a wonderful and refreshing experience to see young people studying the often overlooked experiences of Black people in Europe! I felt really honoured that Heidi has chosen me as one of the people who should share their experiences and their knowledge!"

-Noah Hofmann (author, activist on social media)

Update #1: First Week of Giving

May 10, 2017

We've finished our first week of crowdfunding! To those who have given your gift, we would just like to extend a massive thank-you for your donation. 

This week we would like to talk to some of our former students who have participated in our FemGeniuses program about their experience with FemGeniuses:

“One of the reasons that I loved it so much was that it like a huge scavenger hunt. With each place that you went you got to learn something new and special. One of the other things that I really loved about Berlin was the compassion. Each person that you met was compassionate about their organization and those people that they served. “ - Kadesha Cardine '16

“ I loved that the course challenged me to grow, not only academically, but also socially, more as as a student a peer and a friend” - Stefani Messick '17

"My favorite thing about the course was the speakers that we met. We met with activists, we met with authors, and with poets. We met people who were very familiar with  Berlin, who had a personal  experience with being of color in Berlin and we got a very genuine and honest perspective from the speakers. " - Breana Taylor '16

 

If you haven't given your gift yet please consider doing so today! If you have, thank you and please consider sharing this project on social media or with your family and friends.
