As I turned in my April article last night for SGG, I realized that I've never really posted about what we do or what I do.
I met Emily, our fearless leader, through blogging, then in China, then we both ended up at Mission Training last January together. While we were chatting, we talked about blogs we liked and disliked, and I remember she told me about her idea for The Smart Girls Group. Fast forward a few weeks, and I'm sitting on facebook, when she messaged me and after a few quick questions, she asked me to be the Political and International News columnist.
I said yes, with pleasure, and I haven't really looked back since. It's been incredibly fun and rewarding for me, and the girls that I work with are amazing.
Quincy from the moving girl sums up all that we do the best: "We are an ever-growing community, thanks to our involvement guarantee. Anyone who is interested in joining can join! Some girls work on The Smart Girls Guide, a monthly online magazine. Then there's The Loop, where you can write posts as little or as often as you want. Our schedule goes so there's a blog post every morning and night and sometimes even one in the afternoon! Our Campus Smart Girls are college students who share the SGG message and even have blogs of their own. We even have internships available!"
I truly love my column and I love to write it every month, and I hope people enjoy reading it as much as I love writing it. Many people have asked me if I want to pursue journalism and writing, and honestly, I have no desire to do so. This is fun to me, and I want to keep it just that, something I get to do for fun.
I can't wait to continue working with SGG alongside the Alabama smart girls next year!
Be Smart, Share Smarts!
