Festival Promotes Chica Power

What does chica power mean?  Girls from Latinitas multiple after-school clubs gathered to promote chica power during the Chica Power Fest on December 4th from 10am to 4pm at the Main Public Libray.  Girls described chica power as "young teenage girl who has self-confidence and who has the ability to make smart decisions."  Middle school girls built confidence and developed their voice all while having fun at the fest organized by high school girls in the Latinitas Teen Leadership Instititute. The event highlighted panelists, multimedia trainers, and local female leaders. This event was free and  intended to help girls in grades 4-8 to become teens who are knowledgeable in subjects that are currently challenging teens.
