On Wednesday, October 10, 2019, DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc., The National Council of Negro Women, Temple Section, and Psychology Majors of Color hosted a vision board workshop for young women at The U School in North Philadelphia. During the workshop DonCARES members Nayanka Paul and Cameron Battle-Bradshaw talked with high school students about their dreams and aspirations.
One student stated that she wanted to become a Dermatologist and described her desire to break the stigma against mental health. Bradshaw suggested to DonCARES Executive Director Donovan Forrest that the student who voiced her interests earlier would be a good candidate for a mentor. During the vision board workshop students at The U School and Temple University had a chance to talk about their paths and why they chose their specific career interest.
Nayanka who is a successful entrepreneur shared that she thought the event was a great success. In addition, both U School and Temple students enjoyed Pizza from City View and will have a chance to see their vision boards hung up in the hallway.
