A speech for the closing ceremonies of the Dr. Jean L. Noble Delta GEMS Academy of the Prince George's County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporate. The speech encouraged the young ladies to think critically, calling into question negative images of Black women in the media. Ms. Washington used her experience as a Social Media Strategist to bring in examples - from the controversial Psychology Today article deeming Black women less attractive to the popular song "Who Runs the World (Girls)" by Beyonce. The speech was designed to inspire, encourage, and to push!
