Dear little black girl,

Repeat after me:

I am black.

I am beautiful.

I am intelligent.

I am enough.

I am one of a kind.

Never be afraid to use your voice because your thoughts and opinions are as important as everyone else’s.

Your voice has great POWER so when you speak, speak with fearlessness. Don’t be scared, be confident.

Live your life daringly.

Your voice matters and so do you!
