On Thursday, September 14, G!World, a girls’ group in the Iowa City area geared towards women of color, held its first meeting of the new school year. There were new faces in the program, such as freshmen who participated in the organization at South East Junior High, facilitators, and coordinators who will mentor and assist the students.

“There [are] more people. Having more people is better because other black girls will get inspired and there are activities to do. Since there are more people, there are more things to do,” said Sha’Mia Ansley ‘22.

The program has introduced some new changes for the 2018-19 school year. This year the upper- and lower-classman girls will be separated. In addition, this year’s meetings will be held in different locations other than the school.

“I am both happy and sad about the new the new changes. I am happy because the 11th-graders and 12th-graders will be talking about college applications, which freshmen do not really talk about,”  Everline Bwayo ‘20 said. “The sad part is that I will not have the chance to meet the new girls that join the program.”
