You couldn’t have told me three months ago that this would be the state of the 🌍 today! Everyday it seems like something new is threatening our normal lives. It feels like we’re living in the Apocalypse. As humans and as a Black woman —especially, I’m aware of struggling and facing adversity first hand. But I’m also aware that my ancestors have been through much worse. The events that are currently taking place in America are a clear reminder that we have a whole lot of work to do and that we have to keep pushing. This is what makes us who we are! So please stay strong and keep striving because there is a higher power stronger than all of this chaos! -xoxo #BrooklynGirlCode™ 🖤
It was a Sunday Funday for Brooklyn Girl Code this past weekend when we spent the day at the Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club with NowThis Sports! NowThis, a progressive American media website founded in 2012 by Huffington Post co-founder Kenneth Lerer and former Huffington Post CEO Eric Hippeau is known all over the world for its informative video content. NowThis Sports, a subsidiary of NowThis News will be highlighting the extraordinary sport of Fencing in a new video project and Brooklyn Girl Code’s very own Creator/Editor Aziza Hassan was requested by the video producers to be featured in the new video! But, it does make sense since Aziza is a Brooklyn Girl that loves to fence! 🤺
We’re so excited to see how this cool project turns out and we’ll be sure to let our loyal readers know as soon as it is released. But, until then, check out some cool behind the scenes footage from the shoot this past weekend in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Hey…. Is Brooklyn in the house?!?!
It was nothing but business and positive vibes being exchanged at yesterday’s #BlackToBusiness/Google event held at the Google offices in Chelsea, Manhattan. And you already know #BrooklynGirlCode was in the building!
The event which was titled, ‘Creating A Search-Friendly Website,’ aimed to help new and current business owners gain more revenue for their websites. The program proved to be very informative and engaging for the packed room of young millennials in attendance. During the two-hour event moderated and lead by Google’s National Digital Coach, Angelina Darrisaw Cheeks, attendees were given useful tips on driving more customers to their websites. BlackToBusiness Founder, Monique Marshall also gave some advice to attendees and encouraged everyone to attend her company’s future events.
This was an all-around great NYC event and a good time was had by all! #BrooklynGirlCode is already looking forward to the next one! Check out some pics from yesterday’s event below and enjoy the weekend! ❤
