The project will plant milkweed seeds in a location near the school. This garden will be cultivated throughout the warmer seasons in the hopes that butterflies will be able to rest and eat. Once the milkweed seeds are successfully grown, more plants such as rue, dill, and parsley will be introduced to attract a greater variety of butterflies.

The project will recruit an intern to create our BV Blue Sky webpage, and to then promote clean air throughout our community. Our citizens will then have direct access to our real-time air particulate monitoring, and will be able to evaluate 'how much is too much' in terms of haze, road dust, solid fuel burning, industrial emissions and visibility impairment.

I hope to host the "International Day of Self Love" on February 13th, the day before Valentine's Day, because it's important to love and accept yourself before you can do the same for others. I want this to be a day that is widely celebrated, printed on every calendar around the world. The International Day of Self Love will be a day where individuals can let go of the one insecurity holding them back. Celebrating this day could mean anything, from going without make-up, practicing self-care, or leaving an abusive relationship. This day will be a day where individuals can love, celebrate, and accept themselves completely, without fear of judgment. This day will primarily be hosted on K-12 campuses. I will provide schools with program guides that cover several important social and emotional learning topics. Our guide will have activities focused on identity, mental health, courage, vulnerability, and anti-bullying. Once students explore these important topics, they will end their programming cycle by celebrating the International Day of Self Love. I hope to live in a world where every campus has access to these resources, creating a more open and accepting environment.

Homegirl Project empowers girls of color as leaders through three main initiatives. First, our website (HomegirlProject.org) serves as a forum for networking and community-building among girls from across the world, who share essays and conduct interviews with inspiring women leaders from their hometowns, including civil rights activists, CEOs, actresses, and political leaders. Not only does our website allow girls to see themselves represented in positions of success and share inspiration, but it provides a platform for young writers to be published for the first time, and underrepresented leaders to have their stories shared. Second, our mentorship program (#HomegirlAmbassadors) matches girls with inspiring women leaders in their career fields, giving them the opportunity to be guided and advised through their future plans. Our team reads through applications from both mentors and mentees across the world, and matches them digitally based on shared vision, traits, and interests. Many of our mentors additionally choose to participate in ‘digital mentorship’ by doing a live-streamed Q&A to share advice. Thirdly, our newest program is Homegirl Fellows, an online political advocacy training program that empowers girls to become civically engaged in their communities. Fellows will participate in monthly trainings on topics such as the importance of political participation, community outreach, storytelling, and fundraising. Then, they will be matched with a youth mentor and guided in the process of organizing their own Political Action Project, such as a voter registration, town hall, or letter-writing campaign.

We plan to implement our goals through our three pillars - accessibility, conversation, and education. We plan to create educational modules on menstruation, menstrual hygiene, accessibility, and reproductive health to educate women about their periods. We will also have OB/GYNs approve all of these modules. We will host our first event - Samaan, a drive for equality in August 2019 to collect menstrual hygiene products to donate to women at certain locations in low income communities. Finally, through our interactive social media pages and website we will encourage students to take initiative in this movement for equality and begin speaking about periods fearlessly.

We are applying for a roots and shoots grant to buy plants and fencing. The fencing would isolate the plants long enough for them to become established and grow. We also will ask people in the community to donate a plant(s) and let them know what day the planting will be done so they can watch and see the difference they are making for our wildlife in the area.
