Essence Carson Visit

Essence with NH Girls 4

NY Liberty Star Essence Carson Visits our Girls Program

On Saturday, April 19th at the Harlem PAL, the girls were thrilled to see the WNBA star in person and to get a chance to talk with her about a variety of subjects. Essence spoke to the girls about work ethic and perseverance, driving her point home with a story about her comeback from a bad knee injury. She also talked about being cognizant of how you represent yourself, in that wherever you go you represent your school and New Heights. She touched on the importance of utilizing social media for positive purposes, warning against the negative exposure that can occur when inappropriate content is posted in a public forum. The event was informative and exciting for the girls.
