A mentorship of sorts kicks off for lower and middle school girls.
Founder Jordyn Wilson ‘21 had this to say about the kickoff meeting of her inaugural program. “We had the pleasure of kickstarting the first ever Jumpers and Skirts meetings for interested lower and middle school students. Both of the meetings went really well and were tailored to getting to know the participants. In Lower School, we played icebreaker games and listened to the upper school Jumpers and Skirts buddies read Eyes That Kiss in the Corners. Eyes That Kiss in the Corners is a story made to celebrate and appreciate the beauty of Asian shaped eyes. After reading the story, we opened up the floor to the girls to say one physical feature they love about themselves. One of the participants stated that ‘she loved her beautiful brown skin,’ which filled the whole room with so much joy and happiness.
For middle school participants, we had a fun time getting to know each other through the classic icebreaker game: Two Truths and a Lie. We also played a couple of fun rounds of Getting to Know You Bingo. Although we were virtual, we could feel the middle schoolers’ excitement bursting through the computer screen!
Even though the meetings have been virtual, we were able to see the girls’ smiles beaming from underneath their masks. It completely warmed my heart to see everyone having a great time, and I look forward to many upcoming meetings to come!”
