I love this concept and message inspired by an African proverb, he who learns teaches, which I discovered and altered to she who learns teaches while working on a thesis project in grad school. This message is what drives what I do on a personal, professional and creative level.
With this inspiration I created a limited edition silk-screen print with this message at the center of what I call radiating sparks. Because when we ignite our light our sparkle becomes an inspiration; it reverberates and never stops.
The purchase of each "She Who Learns Teaches" print benefits an organization whose mission is in alignment with this message. I will donate 25% of the proceeds to an organization I absolutely love, Black Girls Code.
With workshops and programs, BGC uses technology as a tool to empower young minority women. Black Girls Code exposes participants to coding, creating content, and developing their digital literacy skills, which gives these girls the power to tell their story and in turn change our world.
Looking for other organizations with a similar mission? Here are some I highly recommend:
Black Girls Rock!
The Black Girl Project
Girls for a Change
Girls Leadership Institute
